here's a small sample:    [I said something like rsync ~ ~]

cd+++++++++ /Users/
cd+++++++++ /Users/pen/
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/A
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/B
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/Desktop DB
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/Desktop DF
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/backup_excludes.txt
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/correct
>f+++++++++ /Users/pen/doit

Yes, what I'm doing is:

~/rsync-new-executable  --dry-run --checksum --recursive 
--ignore-times --itemize-changes --xattrs   -R --exclude-from 
~/backup_excludes.txt $*

I'm on OS X 10.4.11, but I'm using a current rsync, not the one that 
was included with OS X.

I greatly appreciate the help!
