           Summary: rsync hangs at filenames starting with an underscore
           Product: rsync

          Platform: PPC

I'm using rsync 3.0.6 at Mac OS X 10.4.11/PPC to sync a harddisc to an network
folder (via AFP). Everything is fine but if a file begins with an underscore (
_ ), rsync hangs (e.g. _x_.jpg). I tried to analyze the problem with a lots of
debugging options but I don't find a solutions (but to jump over these files).
With rsync 2.9.6 and 2.6.6 it is the same problem.

I'm using configure without any further options.
