I can confirm that the odd behaviour is fixed with the latest nigthly 
build. But there seems to be something wrong with the --fuzzy option 

	Starting remote synchronisation.
	dag at xxxxxxxxxxxx's password:
	building file list ...
	241923 files to consider
	rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes received so far) [sender]
	rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(420)

And the --fuzzy option was my main reason to try out the newer rsync. I 
thought I'd seen previous mails with the exact same message (and 8 bytes 
:)) but can't find them now.

This is perfectly reproducable.

Thanks in advance,
