Possibile rsync --link-dest or --compare-dest bug

I have just migrated my tooling from version 2.6.9 to 3.0.0.
Unfortunately my script generated an error message during the execution.
Because this command was working perfectly in the previous version I suspect
this could be a bug.
This is the command that I am executing:
rsync -av --link-dest=20080313/ --compare-dest=/data/20080313/ 20080313/
It just creates a copy of directory 20080313 to 20080314, but not with an
old fashion copy, but hard linking back to 20080313.
This is the error it is producing:
=== BEGIN SNIP ===
-bash-3.1$ rsync -av --link-dest=20080313/
--compare-dest=/data/BOC55/20080313/ 20080313/ /data/BOC55/20080314/
sending incremental file list
created directory /data/20080314
--compare-dest arg does not exist: 20080313/ <== ERROR
sent 128478 bytes received 1512 bytes 3767.83 bytes/sec
total size is 659198008 speedup is 5071.14
=== END SNIP ===
The weird thing is (besides the error message) that is works perfectly.
Should I create a bug for this ? Or do I need to change the command syntax ?
Any help is appreciated.
