Your rsync daemon configuration looks fine.  (Incidentally, there's no
point in refusing --rsync-path because it is a client option.)  Make
sure you are using rsync 2.6.7 or newer to support the pre/post-xfer
exec parameters.  If that isn't the problem, please post your client
command line and the relevant parts of your stunnel configuration.
