Yes, sorry. Duh...

That's it! Thanks Matt.
I was of the misunderstanding that putting in a command option in
authorized_keys meant that ssh would reject any connections that
didn't specify that command. I didn't realise it meant it would
actually ignore the command coming in on the ssh connection and just
use what it finds in authorized_keys. Will switch to the single user
daemon system, ie from your comment on the above bugzilla:
To set one up,
create an rsyncd.conf in the home directory of the account accessed
and force the command "rsync --daemon --server ." in the
If you want to put rsyncd.conf in a different directory X, then
command "cd X && rsync --daemon --server .". Then you can access
rsync -e "ssh -l sshuser" daemonuser at remote::module/path .
The "refuse options" setting in rsyncd.conf gives you lots of
control over what
options the daemon allows. Thus, forcing an appropriately configured
single-use rsync daemon is almost always better than forcing a
This is now working a treat. Thanks again
