           Summary: old server, new client, unrecognized option problem
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: mjrauhal at cc.helsinki.fi
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

When using a newer client than a server, there's an irritating feature that the
client seems to automatically send all options to the server, and at least I
didn't find any way to turn it off. This causes trouble in some cases, so there
should be at least an option that disables sending another option to the server,
or an option to disregard, without failing, any unknown options.

More spesifically, I'm currently having trouble with wanting to use
--remove-sent-files on the local end when pushing files to a slightly older
rsync server. Here the server really wouldn't even need to know about the switch
being used, but if it is, the whole operation nevertheless fails.

I've verified this on 2.6.5 (Ubuntu) but didn't notice anything in the
changelogs to indicate that this was fixed.
