I passed it the -X option, which it doesn't support, and got this:

rsync: on remote machine: -dXe.L: unknown option
rsync error: requested action not supported (code 4) at clientserver.c(685) [sender=2.6.8]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (4 bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(635) [receiver=3.0.2]

So it looks like the daemon is 2.6.8.  But I set up my own
2.6.8 daemon with a small number of files and couldn't reproduce the
problem.  I guess you should either take the problem up with the administrators (there seem to be some contacts at ) or switch to a different CPAN mirror.
