I don't know how to exactly describe the bug, but the following
test-case reproduces the bug in 3.0.6
mkdir -p "src/directory (name)"
touch "src/directory (name)/somefile"
rsync --archive --dry-run --verbose "src/directory (name)/"
"$USER at 127.0.0.1:$PWD/dest/directory (name)"
The error is:
bash: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `('
bash: -c: line 0: `rsync --server -vnlogDtpre.iLs .
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
