I am running latest rsync  version 2.6.8  on both ends.
The receiver is a daemon. When I transfer a symbolic link
like this:

/tmp/rsync -av /opt/iat/IaT3.1.1/bin/*  uxgary::root/opt/iat/IaT3.1/bin
building file list ... done -> ../python/
iat_status -> ../python/ -> ../python/ -> ../python/ -> ../python/ -> ../python/

However, at the destination the .. is missing. for example
the link "../python/" becomes "python/"
at the destination.
