RSync uses root-directory when path value is missing!

by accident I realized RSync (version 3.0.5, Ubuntu 9.10) uses the root
directory when the path value of a module is empty!

This can cause loss of data (in my case RSync tried to get and delete the
complete directory structure of a server instead of a FTP sub-directory,
but luckily I had set uid and gid to nobody already).

Is this solved in newer versions? If not, is there any bug-report?

Best regards,
