rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far)

Please forgive my digging up a two year old thread, but I've got the
same problem, but the pointers there give no help. This is using
versions 3.0.6 (server) and 3.0.7 (client).
Unfortunately, I have to type the client stuff in by hand. ("Secured"
laptop with highlighting & copying disabled.) Anyway:
$ rsync -vvvvvv -a -e ssh --recursive gdoc rsync-acct at 22.214.171.124::doc
opening connection ....
note: iconv_open("UTF-8", "UTF-8") succeeded.
sending daemon args: ..
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 byes received so far) [sender]
[sender] _exit_cleanup(code=12, file=.../io.c, line=601): about to call exit(12)
==== Yet this works correctly:
rsync -vvvvv -e ssh rsync-acct at 126.96.36.199::
<<blah, blah, followed by the module list>>
=========== The rsync daemon log file had no entries from
this interchange, despite being started with a bunch of "v"s.
I can also use successfully:
rsync -e ssh --recursive -a gdoc rsync-acct at 188.8.131.52:/gdoc
but the problem is that putting the file selection on the client is
(for many reasons)
too painful. So, I want the selection on the server side using a config file.
But I cannot seem to get it working.
All thoughts and help greatfully appreciated!!
