Here's the patch that was in the bug report:

diff -urN rsync-2.5.1.orig/flist.c rsync-2.5.1/flist.c

    file->dev = st.st_dev;
    file->inode = st.st_ino;
-#ifdef HAVE_ST_RDEV
    file->rdev = st.st_rdev;

This solves part of the problem, but there's a related problem discussed in


which hasn't yet been addressed.  The user reported she was using 2.4.6,
and in that release configure was setting HAVE_ST_RDEV, not
HAVE_STRUCT_STAT_RT_RDEV, so it couldn't have been the above problem.  It
looks like this problem was introduced on November 24 in


which was just 3 days before the message I posted above.  According to the
CVS I keep for the rsync binaries I distribute, I didn't upgrade between
November 16 & 30 so I'm quite sure I wasn't testing with the newly broken
