ok thanks, i will try the next CVS snapshot in a few days.

But how about the second part of my posting: the problem with
'echo file1 | rsync --write-batch=data --files-from=- -a -v -v src/ dest/'
writing batch files to different dirs. Ok i could specify an absolute prefix
to --write-batch, but i think it should also work with relative paths.
