I can't reproduce the problem.  I ran the script in your original
message, except I changed "b2" to "b22" and waited a few seconds before
running that line so the file would get a later mtime.  Both rsync 2.6.9
and the latest development rsync correctly replaced b.txt with the
version from new/ on the second run.  Am I missing something?
