I'm now running 2.6.1pre-2, and rsync doesn't stop when the remote
server generates an error (until 2.6.0 I never managed to do a full
run). The issue with non-ASCII chars in filename still prevents my MacOS
X server from getting all files from my Linux/Unix clients; I think that
this should be fixed by deep changes in the rsync codebase to better
handle charsets.

I get a lot of errors like this:

stat "/backup/tmp/www/users/erpi?" failed: No such file or directory
recv_generator: mkdir "/backup/tmp/www/users/erpi?/foto" failed: No such
file or directory

Wayne, what's your thought about this?
