Much appreciated!  That info made me immediately think that there was an
xattr point not being initialized, and indeed, that was the cause.  The
attached patch should hopefully fix this.  It should also fix up the
output of itemized xattr differences when one of the --*-dest options is
enabled, a new hard-link is created, and this new file doesn't match the
alt-dest file.

Anyone seeing this crash, please give this a try.  Thanks!
