the unpacked tarball results in a directory named "portage",
either way, the "emerge-webrsync" is merely a bash shell script. you can
easily find it by googling:
which contains the rsync command i already pasted.
the tarball too is a simple thing which can be found via google:
and verified via md5:
the tarball contains no file or link named "180". either eial has a buggy
filesystem/kernel, or rsync screwed something up, or one of the fixes we
apply in Gentoo (all of which are from rsync upstream) is causing a problem.
it is not the fault of emerge-webrsync.
