I see it now in CVS (post-2.5.6). Thank you.
However, this fix doesn't completely do what I want. If I don't specify
--owner, then it works. However, if I specify -a (implying --owner) but
am not root, then the linking still fails.
Perhaps the preserve_uid variable in rsync should be forced off unless
am_root is true.
