twice submitted a small set of patches to this mailing list and have never
received any indication that the proposed patches were either applied or
rejected. I notice that the rsync-cvs mailing archive shows that no patches
have been applied to rsync in about 8 weeks. I tried sending a personal

patch. I have tested these changes on our system here.
