           Summary: --backup --suffix=.foo doesn't backup deleted files
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.4
          Platform: All
               URL: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=306981
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: paul at debian.org
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

I had a report from a debian user that his rsync job stopped leaving deleted
files behind (with the suffix appended) when he upgraded from 2.6.3. (See URL
for his full message). I've confirmed this.

Additionally, I discovered that when also using --delete-after, the backup
suffix needs to be --exclude-ed, otherwise the backup is deleted after being
created, during the same run...
