It is the intention of --protect-args (-s) to avoid such space splitting.  The
manpage in the cited section mentions that the space-splitting methods are
"old", and later on talks about how -s can be used to avoid them.  Those that
are using newer versions of rsync should be using the non-deprecated, multi-arg
calling syntax, OR the legacy parsing that is provided by the (usually) default
--no-protect-args behavior.  So, I consider this a bug in --protect-args.

I'm looking at a patch similar to the last-proposed one.
