I also added the following to the bug report
Running rsync locally (at least) with the following command line:
sudo rsync -axEHuvv --delete --inplace
In addition to the other problems I've noted, Apple's rsync (2.6.3
protocol version 28) also changes more than a few permissions in
./Library/Application Support/ ./Library/Fonts/ ./Library/Internet
Plug-Ins/ ./Library/Scripts/ and ./System/Library/ (from -rw-rw-r--
Be warned to run Disk Utility repair permissions on target immediately
Snippet from lengthy DU permissions repair output:
Permissions differ on ./Library/Application
Images.workflow, should be -rwxrwxr-x , they are -r--------
Owner and group corrected on ./Library/Application
Permissions corrected on ./Library/Application
