Neither my Cygwin nor my Linux versions of OpenSSH 3.5p1 know of a
-t option. It's not even mentioned in the man pages nor can I find
it in the *source code*. So what did you make to believe there is
such a -t option?

Your environment is broken. Either your home dir is set to /rsync
in /etc/passwd or your user name is incorrect or something else is
wrongly set on your system which nobody can see due to the lack of
details in your posting.
