The character sequence 0343 0200 0242 is E2 80 A2 in hex.  Seems to be a
common sequence for something (since those characters show up via google
search), but I'm not sure what they are (and you don't mention your
system's character encoding).

The difference in behavior between cron and shell is most likely that
the environment variable LANG is set differently, and thus rsync doesn't
think that the character sequence is valid for the current language (and
thus it escapes it).
