"version problem" - John nailed it...

Both my office machine and cr.o.j.n are running OpenSolaris 2008.11, which has:

% /usr/bin/rsync --version
rsync  version 2.6.9  protocol version 29

If your rsync is using a protocol version newer than 29, you need to add 
"--protocol=29" to your command line.

I got on John's system and ran his build of rsync - it worked when I called for 
protocol version 29:

I will add this information to the example on
