excluding a file.

This is what I have tried to use to back a usr partition to a backup drive.

rsync copied most then terminates with a 

mknod var/run/log: Invalid argument
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c (537)

I have tried different combination if var/run/log (with and with the
trailing \) and other combinations.  I want to remove this file from the
rsync list to copy.

/var is linked to /usr/var

Also happens with pre1, pre2, pre3 versions.

rsync-2.5.0/rsync -axW --exclude-from=exclude.txt /usr/ /backup/usr/
