           Summary: Preallocate option doesn't work with recursive?
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: x64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: wgordonharris at gmail.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

With rsync  version 3.1.0dev  protocol version 31.PR14, using the --preallocate
and --recursive options:

It appears as though preallocation only happens with files in the first
directory copied.  In subsequent directories, rsync seems to revert to stock
behavior, i.e. no preallocation.

Command line used:

rsync --links --perms --times --group --owner --devices --specials --stats
--progress --verbose --preallocate --recursive --include=*/ --include=*
--exclude=* /mnt/media/Music/ /mnt/medianew/Music
