Hi again all,
Has anyone else seen Mark's problem, which sounds like a weird interaction
issue between samba and rsync?
Mark, I will add a note about your experience here to the web page; so
far it's the only report I've seen though, and I'd really like to get
more data. Is anyone else running the rsync-snapshot trick from windows
machines via Samba? Can we get more debugging information to determine
the source of the problem?
