I'm not really sure that is the same bug.  Maybe it is.  Not convinced
though.  I guess I can file my own bug and ask 7870's OP to see if it's
the same issue.

But as I said before, it won't.  Not all files in the destination are
the same as the source and files may exist in the destination that don't
exist in the source.
