One more patch

You are right that there was another bug that could result in this mkdir
warning message.  It was fixed in CVS on October 27, so this fix did not make
it into 2.6.3.	Sorry for not mentioning this fact as an addendum to this bug
report (before this).  I'm attaching the patch that was checked into CVS.

Prior to this patch, if a directory was being removed, rsync would try to
create a directory in the backup area to note this fact.  This often resulted
in rsync trying to create a directory that already existed.  Fortunately, there
is no real need to backup an empty directory on its own, so the new code only
creates directories in the backup hierarachy when they are needed to hold other
backup items.
