           Summary: Copy from NTFS to VFAT produces mkstemp and stat errors
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.2
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: rsync at blazemonger.com

When I run rsync on a Linux machine (SuSE 9.1 with kernel
2.6.5-7.9.5-smp), copying from an NTFS partition to a VFAT partition,
I get tons of errors from "mkstemp" like these:

mkstemp "/mnt/backup/lisa/g/Work/Mac_Home/CONFERENCE PAPERS/ISSPR/HLM ATT RUNS/\
.att19 out.m31kTI" failed: No such file or directory
mkstemp "/mnt/backup/lisa/g/Work/Mac_Home/CONFERENCE PAPERS/ISSPR/HLM ATT RUNS/\
.att2 out.54lonG" failed: No such file or directory

The NTFS partition is on a real Windows XP machine elsewhere on the network,
mounted on the Linux box via samba. The copy command is:

rsync -rtv /mnt/xp/machine /mnt/backup/lisa

where /mnt/xp/machine is the samba-mounted XP NTFS disk and
/mnt/backup/lisa is the local VFAT partition.

Is this a limitation of the filesystems or an rsync bug?
