I subscribed to report a bug.
if I rsync a directory from a PC (invoked on the PC) to a unix server
through ssh, the first time all works fine, then if I do it again and there
are no copys it crashes on the PC. If I touch one file on the PC so it
copys at least one file then all is OK.
I have the latest cygwin installed on a PC with freshly installed win2000
build 5.00.2195, and the latest version installed from debian "woody" on a
The debian version:
rsync version 2.5.4 protocol version 26
The cygwin version:
rsync version 2.5.5 protocol version 26
If I run with -vvv I get the following consistently just before it crashes.
>accounts/quickenw/whatsnew.wri is uptodate
>accounts/quickenw/~QW~LINK.QDT is uptodate
>accounts/~QW~LINK.QDT is uptodate
>send files finished
>total: matches=0 tag_hits=0 false_alarms=0 data=0
(cursor left here)
The crash is "hard" it does not exit but hangs the process, and sometimes
corrupts enough that I cant kill the process from windows task manager.
If I re-arrange the directory structure it still happens. It always
crashes just after displaying the second "recv_generator(dir,num)" entry
after the "total:" print.
I can work around it by forcing a file copy, but :)
Thanks. Peter K.
