WHY OH WHY does rsync SEND and CREATE a file called RepositoryPath ALTHOUGH 
the rsync is called like

rsync "--exclude=*.bup RepositoryPath" ...

can ANYBODY explain.

ALSO when you specify an exclude list on the server in the rsyncd.conf file 
and you call rsync with the --delete option WHY DO THE FILES that SHOULD BE 
EXCLUDED get deleted ??

Jeeez, what a bummer
