           Summary: Push to a daemon with --only-write-batch modifies dest
                    and then hangs
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: matt at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

Using the latest development rsync, if I push files to a daemon with
--only-write-batch, the daemon makes some of the changes to the destination and
then hangs.  The run should finish with no changes made to the destination.

To reproduce, run the following in an empty directory:

export PATH=/path/to/rsync/build/tree:$PATH
sh module 3141 user
    (Choose a password and enter it twice)
mkdir upload
ln -s . upload/me
echo foo >upload/file
rsync -rl --only-write-batch=thebatch upload/
    (Enter the password)
    (When the process hangs, press ^C)
ls -la module
    (Note that the symlink was copied.)
