double colon (::) method to talk to the rsync daemon on the receiving end.

I have been having regular failures of this backup and have traced it
down to copying a 60Gb .vdi (Virtual Box virtual disk image). The manual
command, and error I received when I just tried it was...

rsync Windows\ 7\ Development\ Environment.vdi
owl::alan/backup/"VirtualBox VMs"/"Windows 7 Development Environment"/
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (2966704 bytes received so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(601)

After several failed attempts I replaced the :: method with a single colon one (ie uses ssh) and it works perfectly.

So either there is a setting I need in rsyncd.conf or there is a bug in this form of the protocol?
