           Summary: %M in log format converts following spaces into '-'
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.2
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: wolfgang.mayer at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at


rsync -an --out-format="%M %f" /home /tmp

In the output, all spaces following %M are converted to '-'. (When using tabs
to delimit the format specifiers, the problem does not seem to occur.)
The same happens when using custom log formats.

This is on Linux [Fedora 7, 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7, x86_64, glibc 2.6].
