Thanks for the report.  It sounds like I need to make the code on the generator
side never use an abbreviated value when it is copying the data (unlike the
data coming from the sender, which will abbreviate long values and compare
checksums).  I'll look into this for the release after 3.0.1.

For now, you may be able to apply the acls.diff and xattrs.diff
backward-compatibility patches, and then try using --protocol=29 for an xattr
copy with --backup.  That combination avoids abbreviated long values since the
older protocol did not suppor them.
