I doubt that this is an rsync problem, so I would suggest that you investigate
what is going on with your OS.  Some suggestions:

Use higher levels of verbosity to see what username mapping rsync is doing for
these files.  That might show you what user is having a problem.

Try using the --numeric-ids option to see if that avoids the problem (which
might help you to narrow down what is going wrong).

Try running rsync under strace (or truss, or whatever your OS supplies) to see
what arguments are being passed to the chown() call.  See the issues and
debugging web page, http://rsync.samba.org/issues.html, for a script that can be
used for this purpose.
