On MacOS X 10.5.1, source PPC target Intel over a Firewire TCP/IP  

sudo  /usr/local/bin/rsync -ai --stats -AX --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/ 
rsync  [...]

apart from various warnings on sockets:

rsync: get_xattr_names: llistxattr("...",1024) failed: Operation not  
permitted (1)

that resulted in the socket not being copied (even with --specials)

I got these stats for about 30GB worth of data in about 2 hours:

Number of files: 407317
Number of files transferred: 377808

^^^^ has this mismatch something to do with the first including  
directories and the second not?

rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at  
main.c(1058) [sender=3.0.0pre7]

I did again a rsync after a while to refresh the copy, this time 5  
minutes (about 30MB transferred).

Then I did an mtree (with type, cksum and mode as keywords) on both  
sides, and apart from a few files that changed because I was logged in  
as the user I was backing up, both sides had identical modes and  
checksums. I checked also some extended attributes for a few files,  
but did not do an extensive check on this regard.

A note: I did not get any compiler warnings and I did not apply any of  
the patches.

As far as I can tell, this version behaves very well.

Good work!
