pre-exec quit executing

I'm trying to track down a mystery.
I have a remote box that's running rsync 2.6.9. I tested it and
everything worked fine for a while.
I use pre-xfer exec to mount the cifs shares that I will rsync and
post-xfer exec to unmount them. All of this worked fine in the shop and
for the first two days on the customer's site.
The remote is running rsync in server mode from inittab:
rsync --deamon --no-detach
Now, for no apparent reason, the remote rsync won't:
run pre/post-xfer exec
Other options in the rsyncd.conf file work fine.
If I mount the cifs shares manually, rsync process normally.
I've intentially put bogus commands into the pre-post-xfer lines, and
AFAICT they're just being ignored.
Since the remote is on a small appliance with 32 MB RAM, I thought maybe
it's some sort of memory leak; I rebooted the box to eliminate that but
I am using rsync 2.6.9 on both sides. Can anyone offer any suggestions
on how to debug this?
