           Summary: -H (--hard-links) is broken when sending to remote
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.2
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: NetBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: gcw at

Running local to local, hard-link support has exhibited no obvious problems.

Running local to remote, a file hard-linked, say 153 times, would be sent 153
times and stored on the remote 153 times.  Both ends running 3.0.2.
This seems to be independent of recursion options - exhibited without -r, with
-r, and with -r --no-i-r

Not tested:
- interaction between 3.* and 2.*
- running remote to remote, or remote to local
