Thanks for taking the time to review this problem and my suggestions. See below
for more data. I still think that it will be a good to avoid "commiting" files
with bad permissions - just as extra protection against unexpected problems
from NFS, or other types of remote file systems (i.e. FUSE).

As for my problem, I found that with older rsync, the "finish_transfer" used to
set the permission and ownership after renaming the file, which will result in
(temporary) bad ownership and permissions. By mistake, I was testing and
reviewing the source code for 2.6.5. I will try to reduce the priority for this
