There's a sorting bug in 2.6.1 that can occur when --relative is used
that can make it update files incorrectly (since the file list is out
of order, rsync asks for the wrong file's data).

** Do not use --relative (-R) in 2.6.1. **

** Don't forget that --files-from sets --relative by default. **

Rsync 2.6.2 will be released very soon to fix this.  Until then, either
avoid --relative, fall back to 2.6.0, or apply this patch to the 2.6.1
