           Summary: --copy-links not excluding files that match length and
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.5.7
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: wim.heirman at elis.ugent.be
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

When using --copy-links, rsync should check wether the referent of the symlink 
and the destination file match in length and time and possibly exclude the 
file; I suspect that at the moment the symlink itself is examined which is of 
course not the same size as the destination file, causing the file not to be 
excluded even when it should have been.
