wayne, ok i wish it worked the way you say it did.
maybe im stupid and im missing something, this is what i did:
(using rsync 2.5.7)
rsync -va d1/ d2
(both files are copied over as expected)
echo "hello" > d1/a.txt
(now im going to sync d1 to d3, with d2 as compare dest,
theoratically, as you say it should, only "a.txt" should be copied
to d3, since its the only one that changed compared to d2, RIGHT?)
rsync -va --compare-dest=d2 d1/ d3
(it copied both files! why?)
echo "test123" >> d3/b.txt
(AND its not a link!, it was copied)
