Rsync depends on being able to communicate what is happening to the remote
side via options.  If something is mangling the options, any number of
things can break, sometimes in spectacular ways.  So, unless you always run
the exact same rsync command into the server, you should figure out some way
for rsync to communicate what it is doing.  One way is to force a
single-use-daemon rsync (force the command "rsync --server --daemon ."), and
using a combined ssh+daemon rsync request (after you setup a local
rsyncd.conf file for the user).
