            Bug ID: 13104
           Summary: NULL deref do_server_sender when argc=0
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.3
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

patch to handle argc == 0

$ bin/rsync --version
rsync  version 3.1.3dev  protocol version 31

this exist in 3.1.2 as well. 

rsyncd reads in arguments from the connecting client. These are parsed in
parse_arguments.parse_arguments parses what it can via popt, and increments
argv and decrements argc to reflect the consumed values. 

The problem is that do_server_sender is expecting at least 1 argument to use as

786     char *dir = argv[0];

When there are no arguments in argv this leads a a NULL deref.
