Hi, we have started getting "file exists" ~100s errors every day. I think we
never got it with rsync 2.6.9. Is there anything changed in new version that
has been generating these errors?

Error while syncing /usr/local/theapp/: rsync: symlink
"/usr/local/theapp/2009.uv" -> "../thedt.uv" failed: File exists (17)
Error while syncing /usr/local/theapp/: rsync error: some files/attrs were
not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1039)

Am I missing anything?
