OK.  I used the following:

tar -cpvzO / --exclude-from=/home/not-file 2>/tmp/tarlog.err | ssh 
user at ipaddrs "cat > backup.tgz"

No messages went to the screen.  tarlog.err is 4Mb large.  Looked at it 
for error messages.

NONE!  not even the one I was getting before routing stderr.out.  I did 
a the -l option, but that should not result in no error messages...

So now what?
