Please double-check the rsync version on both ends of the transfer.  I can
duplicate the bug with the args you mention back in 2.5.7 and 2.6.0, but not in
2.6.1 or newer -- at least, not without adding either --no-implied-dirs or
--exclude='*/'.  The difference is that newer rsyncs prefer to use the path
/etc/ rather than /etc/./, , and it is the trailing . dir that tickles the bug
(due to create_directory_path() creating the actual directory itself instead of
just the path through the parent directory).

In any case, the just-attached patch fixes the problem in the CVS version.
