I know of no such rsync version (there was a 2.4.6).

The temp-dir option is meant to be relative to the module's path, so
that should be attempting to create the file in /appl/tmp.  There was a
bug in some older rsync versions that might not have enforced that
restriction when chroot wasn't enabled, so you'll need to test to know
for sure what is happening.
