Hi Wayne,

The patch works just fine - thanks!  I had originally used the same patch;
however, I went with the stat wrapper because:

1) I thought including symlink (pipe, etc) sizes in statistics was intentional

2) I figured a purist would be upset if bogus data lingered in the stat structure

3) I'm not familiar enough with rsync internals to ensure that I would find all
possible "bad" uses of st_size.  You're certainly well versed in rsync internals
and can make such a determination ;-).

Anyway, much obliged for the fix.  David
