exit code for vanished files in 2.6.9

I am using rsync 2.6.9 (as currently packaged in Mandriva 2007.1)

Ever since the latest update of the package I have been getting an exit
code of 23 with the output "file has vanished: {filename}".

For partial transfers due to vanished files, I  (and my script) would
expect exit code 24.

(man page)
23     Partial transfer due to error

24     Partial transfer due to vanished source files

I could not find any similar reports of this behavior and was just
wondering if this may be a new bug.

Thanks in advance for any help/info on this problem.
