Bug: in 2.6.1

If, in a hierarchy which has been previously rsync()ed, I replace a
non-empty directory with a symbolic link the rsync will fail.
It does work if the original directory was empty.
It also works if I specify --delete (presumably since that deletes
first, so we end up with an empty directory).
But using --delete on a job by default isn't a good idea!
Is there some way to get symlinks to replace non-empty directories
without using --delete?
