Good -- that is what I expected.  3.1.0 has much-improved code for maintaining
the backup hierarchy.  The 3.0.x code can get confused by a directory that
needs to be replaced by a file, and other fun (or not so fun) path conflicts. 
With the 3.0.x code, you have to manually clean up your backup dir when rsync
outputs an error about it.  Beginning with 3.1.0, rsync will do a much better
job of keeping the backup directory hierarchy in good shape.
