------- Additional Comments From wayned at samba.org  2004-08-10 23:05 -------
You must be running the daemon with chroot enabled, making it impossible to
follow a symlink outside the module's root path.  Your only choices are to
disable chroot (see the rsyncd.conf man page) or to make the symlinks relative
links to content inside the chrooted area.

The CVS version of rsync outputs a better error than the misleading "file has
vanished" one that 2.6.2 outputs, so it would at least have told you that the
symlink was invalid.
