Rsync was of the belief that a mask was only needed if an ACL had named
values, otherwise it tried to simplify the ACL to mask off the group
mode and dropped the mask.  I've checked in a change that makes it keep
whatever mask value is specified, so the ACLs should be identical now.
This will get released in 3.0.6.
