That can't be 2.6.6 because 2.6.6 doesn't have an error message of that
format.  In 2.6.6, the old "malformed address" error now outputs as
"error matching address" and includes the gai_strerror() text after a
colon.  A new error in 2.6.6 that does include the string "malformed
address" would have also included the gai_strerror() text after a colon.
Thus, that's still the old rsync running.  Perhaps it didn't really get
stopped?  Or perhaps it is running via inetd?
