This has already been fixed in the CVS version, so it will appear in the next

In currently released versions of rsync, the error is hidden unless -vv is
specified, which is clearly wrong (as you discovered).  It is easy to patch this
fix into any version of rsync by looking for the stat() error in generator.c and
removing the "if (verbose > 1)" check.  The code will then look like this:

        rsyserr(FERROR, stat_errno, "recv_generator: failed to stat %s",
