Yeh, that was a bit of a hasty suggestion on second thoughts, after all
tilde expansion only happens if the "~" is followed by a "/".
However you have left the "--" off the "password-file" option, so it thinks
the whole thing is a file name to rsync! And because it doesn't start with a
"/", it's a relative path, and you're running in your home dir when you
execute the command, so it expands that by prepending the cwd path....
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
