Since rsync is just trying to setup the protocol, I'd imagine that your
shell is outputting extraneous characters. You can try running something
manually, such as "ssh host echo hello", which should output only "hello",
and "ssh host rsync --server . ." (note the 2 trailing dot args) which
should output nothing, and require a Ctrl-C to kill it.  You might be able
to work around the issue with something like -e'ssh -q'.
