First, Thansk for a great tool!

I run rsync supplied with RedHat 7.3
 rsync --version
rsync  version 2.5.4  protocol version 26
Copyright (C) 1996-2002 by Andrew Tridgell and others
Capabilities: 64-bit files, socketpairs, hard links, symlinks, batchfiles, 
              64-bit system inums, 64-bit internal inums

and I experience the followinf errors when I issue this command
rsync -a --delete * /mnt/navhdb2

Files beginning with . will not get deleted at the destination if they 
don't exist in the source. (I detected that i leaves erased .forward 

I hade replaced a directory with a symbolic link at the source but the 
destination kept the directory.

Please respond to me just so I know the reasons of my problems.
