I've just released 2.6.2pre1 to the rsync web site. Please test it to see that it fixes the recently-reported problems from the list. The main fix is the file-list-sorting problem when --relative is used. I've also included several other fixes (though I've neglected to update the NEWS file -- I'll do that now). http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/preview/ ..wayne..
