I have observed this same problem in the rsync that was recently installed in
fedora core 5 updates (rsync-2.6.8-1.FC5.1).  The -v switch corrects the
problem.  I can post the tar file if you want, but I don't think you should
need it. I give you the recipe instead.  Observe. I just copied the first tmp
file I could find into test2 and without -v, it is not mentioned.

[pauljohn at pols125 ~]$ cd /tmp/
[pauljohn at pols125 tmp]$ mkdir test1
[pauljohn at pols125 tmp]$ mkdir test2
[pauljohn at pols125 tmp]$ cp VitaePosted.lyx test1/
[pauljohn at pols125 tmp]$ rsync -ran test1 test2
[pauljohn at pols125 tmp]$ rsync -ravn test1 test2
