Is this condition (am_server == 1 and am_daemon == 0) possible ?

For an rsync daemon process handling an individual request. Here's a
listing of all the cases (Wayne please correct me if necessary):
am_server = 0, am_daemon = 0: client called by user from the command line
am_server = 1, am_daemon = 0: server invoked over a remote shell or
forked locally by client
am_server = 0, am_daemon = 1: main process of non-single-use daemon
am_server = 1, am_daemon = 1: single-use daemon, or daemon process
handling an individual request
Independent of this are am_sender and am_generator. Those are never
both 1. If both are 0, the process is the receiver.

This is not possible because start_server never returns: it ends with
exit_cleanup(0), which exits the process.
