Is appears to be a client issue - where does it pick up the -e ssh from? Check 
for aliases in your shell or global client defaults for your distribution.

The command feedback is as if you were including the "-e ssh" argument to 


$ export LOGNAME=marco
$ export RSYNC_PASSWORD=yourpassword
$ mkdir tmp
$ rsync -avv server::section tmp/
