           Summary: [sender] could not find xattr #1 for home/jdoe/TheFresh
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.5
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: stlman at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

I get a message like the one in the summary when I try to copy files with their
EAs (xattrs.c:591 in 3.0.6, I run 3.0.5). However, "TheFresh" directory has got
no attributes (empty output of getfattr -dm. /home/jdoe/TheFresh).

The error does not occur during a dry-run, although it shows a line like this
.d........x home/jdoe/TheFresh/
when neither local nor remote (target) copy of the directory have any EAs.
The command is:
/usr/bin/rsync -XAHain --stats --delete-excluded --delete --iconv=utf8,utf8
--password-file=/root/rsync/rsync.backup.cred --filter='.
/root/rsync/system.exclude' / backup at

There seem to be completely nothing special about this /home/jdoe/TheFresh
directory whatsoever.
