No such file or directory (2)

There's a bug in some versions of rsnapshot that causes it to try and 
execute cmd_ssh + ssh_args as a single command. The workaround is either 
to put as much of ssh_args as possible into $HOME/.ssh/config for the 
specific target host, or to create a /usr/local/bin/ssh-for-rsnapshot 
type script that incorporates the call to ssh with the relevant arguments.
