--- Comment #3 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
This isn't an rsync problem this is the way the shell works.  When you run
rsync over ssh as you are doing there rsync is running 'ssh remotehost rsync
[options] path'.  There is a shell between the sshd process and the remote
rsync process.  Therefore you have 2 layers of shell involved and have to deal
with both of them rather than just 1.

You would run into the same problem any time you double stack a shell:
echo "doesn't work"
sh -c 'echo "doesn't work"'

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the QA Contact for the bug.
