Another work-around here would be in my differential update script to
simply clear /System/Library/CoreServices/* each time and let it be
recopied. Versus the exclude work-around it has more assurance of
maintaining system consistency - but it's still just a work-around to
the root problem.
I'm still perplexed about why the renaming is even attempted in rsync.
I mean, if it's necessary it should not fail and if it's not necessary
it should not be atempted. The most logical place to ask this question
is this rsync forum, but no one has yet even acknowledged the issue. I
suppose the reason is indicated by my not being able to find anything
specifically relevant in all my searching.
The whole point of my research and testing is to present move "native"
techniques in a comprehensive "Backup::Restore" article. So far the
results (or my lack of understanding) indicate rsync not being ready for
prime time on OS X Tiger.
