------- Comment #1 from matt at  2008-02-21 18:28 CST -------
This is the expected behavior, however unfortunate.  Beginning with rsync
3.0.0pre10, the default is for a daemon never to map uids/gids by name in
modules with "use chroot" enabled.  This closes a vulnerability where a client
might be able to compromise a daemon process by uploading shared libraries that
the daemon process would load in an attempt to do uid/gid mapping.  If your
modules are read-only or you have taken other security measures, you can set
"numeric ids = true" in the configuration to re-enable uid/gid mapping.  See
section `3. Daemon advisory for "use chroot = yes"' of for more information.
