	When attempting to transfer files via rsync from
	the following occurs.

# rsync rsync://
@ERROR: failed to open lock file /var/run/rsyncd.lock : Permission denied

	This occurs when actually attempting to bring down something rather
	than simply doing 'rsync rsync://' which works.

	Attempt to rsync with "rsync rsync://"
	Presumably correct permissions problem on the rsync/sup/ftp server.
