You're using rsync 2.6.8 with only my first patch, right?  By fixing
one bug (merge files being lost altogether), that patch revealed the
bug you're seeing now ("-" rules in merge files not being properly
elided), which I fixed in my second patch and Wayne fixed a different
way in the CVS.  Please try the latest CVS and see if it works the way
you expect.
