Paul, this message was big enough without also being in HTML!  It was
probably flagged as spam, hence the long delay.

I also see this problem, on V5.0A and V5.1 as well.

Try the patch described here:


It appears to have been committed, if you want to try a CVS checkout.

(I haven't tried the patch or CVS myself.  My rsync-2.5.5 works
because I built it on DU-4.0D. :-)

Please do report back whether this solves the problem.  We do want
rsync-2.5.6 to build cleanly on Tru64 V5.1A!
