           Summary: iconv: client charset used by server process
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: PPC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at

If rsync-3.0.0pre1 is called like

  rsync  --iconv=UTF-8-MAC,UTF-8 SOURCE HOST:DEST

the client charset, here UTF-8-MAC, is forwarded to the server process rather
than the specified destination charset UTF-8.  This is due a bug in
setup_iconv() where iconv_opt isn't truncated to the destination charset as
expected by server_options(...).
