------- Comment #2 from wayned at  2007-09-22 18:04 CST -------
Rsync now sends implied directory elements as directories, which avoids this
problem.  This is a much saner way to interpret a full path, IMHO.

In the test case below, rsync will now output that it is creating a directory
"b", and its file "foo".  If the user wants the old result, the required
command would be to copy the symlink (src/./b) and the referent directory
(src/.a/) explicitly.
