Ah, I now see that the pre-test instructions differ very significantly from the production ones :
Pre-test: rsync -a --delete --exclude="mactex*" somemirror::/some/path/ /your/local/dir
Production: rsync -a --delete rsync://somectan/somepath/systems/texlive/tlnet/ /your/local/dir
No <scheme> or "://" in the pre-test syntax but instead a "::" after <somemirror>; might this explain the problem ?
