           Summary: fifo's may only be copied by root
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.5
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: rsync-contact at fischglas.de
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

the creation of a fifo (named pipe) is not a privileged function - at least on
freebsd, linux and solaris.
so it should not require root-privileges to be done.
instead they should be copied like ordinary files, too.
