Is that newharbor/home/home dir really desired?  Without a trailing slash on
the source, the "home" dir is part of the transfer, and will be expected to
exist inside the link-dest dir and will be created inside the destination
dir.  If it is not, either add a trailing slash to the source, or remove the
trailing "home" from both the link-dest arg and the destination.
