Thanks for the hint regarding rsync path I though it may be a security issue.
I'm currently using debian's testing version (rsync  version 3.0.2  protocol 
version 30) and here's the client side command line and the stunnel 

/usr/bin/rsync -za --stats -v /etc /root /home myhost at localhost::myhost

# Server side :
accept = 8732
connect = 8731

#Client side :
accept  = localhost:873
connect = backup-host:8732
