On comparing file sizes I noted that the 2.6.8 versions of rscynd and rsync
are the same file.  I backed those up and copied the /usr/local/bin/rsync
3.0.6 version as /usr/sbin/rsyncd and /usr/bin/rsync.  I no longer get the
"--xattrs requires protocol 30..." error.

Depends on how the package was built.  Rsync is just one executable, so be
sure to put it in a consistent spot.  For your daemon setup, check your
xinetd setup and/or init file to see what they are running.
