           Summary: rsync auto rename .dat files to .exe
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.7
          Platform: x64
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: grehe at yahoo.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

I have some files that are .dat data files and some are .exe files which I
renamed to .ex. But when rsync copies the files to the destination folder, it
also renames them to "File.dat.ex" and "File.ex.exe" which causes
synchronization issues on multiple machines. You can recreate this by rename
any .exe file to .ex and run rsync on it.

I am using rsync from cwRsync on Windows 7 and I do not believe this bug have
been fixed as I have searched bugzilla and changelogs to the newer versions.
