Bizarre. I just did and rpmbuild of rsync-3.0.2-0 under Fedora fc8 and installed
it on several servers. All the rsync between these newest version or rsync seem
to work as expected.

And still whatever files under src/ I remove are synced again.

It appears the site is acting unexpectedly.

Let me know if there is some way I can identify the protocol version of the server as I saw no mention of this in the rsync man page.

If not... ah well...
