Those are two different things.  Without ssh, you're connecting to an
existing rsync daemon.  With ssh (via -e), you're using a remote shell
to login to a remote host and start a NEW rsync process to handle a
single request.  I'd imagine that this new rsync process can't find its
config file (it looks in the home directory of the user by default).
