-x tries to descend into FUSE filesystems

I've noticed that an "rsync -avx . host:/test" tries to descend into a
FUSE filesystem (on the origin/sending side). This is at least true when
the FUSE is mounted by somebody else.
I came accross this while my nightly backup choked on this with
"Permission denied" at the mount point.
FUSE is a mount subsystem in Linux that enables userspace filesystems.
A FUSE mounted fs is normally not accessible by other users. - This is
to avoid trapping e.g. root in some system calls that are in fact in
control of the user who mounted the fs.
Here is what e.g. "ls" sees:
ls -la ~siemer/mnt/
drwxr-xr-x 4 siemer siemer 4096 2006-03-24 13:43 .
drwxr-xr-x 125 siemer siemer 12288 2006-09-05 10:32 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 siemer siemer 4096 2006-03-24 13:43 cd
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? /home/siemer/mnt/elf12
Is there a work around? <-:
