The "a" directory is outside the scope of the file list.  Rsync is not
responsible for its attributes.

"sourcedir" on the destination is at the file-list root.  Rsync does not
include the file-list root as an implied dir unless you write an extra "." in
the source arg: /a/sourcedir/./.g/dirtree/to/transfer .  Leaving out the
file-list root seems like a gratuitous special case to me.  Wayne, is there a
reason for this (other than backward compatibility now that rsync has been
doing it)?
