           Summary: extended attributes only copy if ACLs are copied on a
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.3
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: psturdza at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

Same issue as reported by Smokin Jake to the email list on 6 April still
happens with version 3.0.3pre2.
sudo rsync -avXH --fileflags --crtimes /Src/ /Dst/
does not copy extended attributes according to backup bouncer.  Adding -A to
the argument list does result in the extended attributes being copied.

This is on a 64-bit Intel Mac, if that matters:
rsync  version 3.0.3pre2  protocol version 30
