Good call.  I observed rsyncd 2.6.8 starting up in the /var/log/rsyncd.log.

Should the rsync*.tar.gz install procedure replaced rsyncd 2.6.8 as well as
rsync 2.6.8 with the 3.0.6 version?
Stopped the rscyncd and re-ran the install of the tar.gz but no change.  The
install was done as root.

You'll undoubtedly find that there is an older rsync on the $PATH on one of
the machines.  e.g, try this:

ssh hostname rsync --version

Either get rid of the old version, or specify --rsync-path=/path/rsync so
that you get the rsync you expect.
