(don't ask me why the two --exclude)

I get these two error messages (maybe more):

rsync: unpack_smb_acl: sys_acl_get_info(): Unknown error: 0 (0)

rsync: set_acl: sys_acl_set_file(Documents/temp/foo,  
SMB_ACL_TYPE_ACCESS): Operation not supported (45)

the source volume was set to support ACLs, the target (and  
compare_dest obviously) volume was not... I could not find any acl  
entry in the source near where the error happened, but with  
incremental transfers I am not sure where it did happen.

  I have another volume still not set for ACLs, so I could do another  
test, but it cannot be exactly the same. I will keep that clean in  
case you have an advice on how to do this test again. I am not sure  
enabling ACLs on a volume (by fsaclctl) is a totally reversible action.
