In your config file for the daemon, do you have "uid = 0" and "gid = 0"
in it (or something similar)?  If not, the daemon process that is
handling the transfer is running as an unprivileged user.

If you have that right and it doesn't solve the problem, are you using
the right transfer syntax for daemon mode -- either two colons (::), or
the rsync://.../ syntax?  If you're using a single colon, it is using a
remote shell to login to the remote host, and would be running as the
user that ran the client.
