Rsync doesn't care about an underscore-starting file, but OS X sometimes
creates virtual files for associated data that are named for the primary file
with a leading underscore added.  The official rsync uses xattrs for this data,
so make sure you aren't mixing an apple-modified rsync (which creates extra
filenames) with an xattr-using rsync.
