rsync server incorrect link creation

I MAY have found an rsync bug..... I'm running rsync version 2.5.5 on
Redhat linux 7.2. I have a symlink that was created as:
ln -s /foo/bar/filename .
When rsync is run 'locally' (i.e. rsync -lrt --delete /foo/bar/filename
/dir1/dir2/dir3) It correctly creates the symlink in dir3. When runing an
(i.e. rsync -lrt --delete /foo/bar/filename systemname::key/dir3) It strips
off the leading slash in the sym-link.
My rsync.conf file looks like this:
use chroot = no
pid file = /etc/rsyncd.pid
log file = /etc/rsyncd.log
path = /afs/dir1/dir2
read only = 0
I've tried adding a slash at the end of the path.... the rsync daemon
still strips the leading slash when (re) creating the sym-link.... I have
the source and will see if I can figure out the problem as I have time.
