--- Comment #1 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> ---
Your destination path has a space in it, which you must either quote or escape
enough in the local shell that the remote shell gets the right name, or you can
use the --protect-args (-s) option to tell rsync that you want it to preserve
the spaces for you.  I can see that would cause rsync to change the destination
path to end at a "--" name, so I'm not sure how the extra dot and suffix got
there, but I imagine the reason to be related to the above.
