The trouble is that rsync is trying to set a default ACL on a file, which
doesn't make sense.  (Why the ACL designers chose "Permission denied" as the
error message I can't say; I complained on their mailing list.)

Rsync's extended attribute support is known to be a little spotty (bug 2793). 
Probably rsync noticed a directory that had system.posix_acl_default and didn't
properly forget the attribute when it moved to the next file.  Perhaps someone
could read xattrs.c and find the specific problem.
