You're right!
I wasn't aware that this is the version from RPMForge. On the source server
there was still the CentOS one 2.6.8 WITH the bug.

So the solution is:

Original rsync-2.6.8-3.1 has still this bug.
DAG rsync-2.6.9-1.el5.rf has fixed this bug.

With the newer version on both sides it now works fine!

Thanks for the hint.
