This also results in the following errormessage on my system:
 command-line: line 0: Bad configuration option: 'ProxyCommand
 rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
 rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(420)

So I'm affraid it suffers from the same problem as when using \" for the options
for ssh.
