OK, but if you remove the .manifest file, access will
be allowed.  I am uncertain at this stage as to whether
the fundamental problem lies with Rsync (or the exact
incantation used to launch it) or with the .manifest
files, but bearing in mind that for TeX Live 2008 
I was able to use Rsync without difficulty, I am more
inclined to suspect the .manifest files.
