           Summary: Option --recursive fails if followed by another option
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: axelboldt at yahoo.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

I am using rsync 3.0.9 protocol version 30 from the cygwin package
rsync-3.0.9-1 under Windows 7.

$ cd /tmp
$ mkdir c d
$ rsync --recursive –-verbose c d
rsync: link_stat "/tmp/–-verbose" failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code
23) at /home/lapo/package/rsync-3.0.9-1/src/rsync-3.0.9/main.c(1052)
$ rsync --verbose --recursive c d
sending incremental file list

sent 32 bytes  received 13 bytes  90.00 bytes/sec
total size is 0  speedup is 0.00

Obviously "--verbose" is interpreted as a file name in the first example. If
this is intended, then this behavior needs to be documented on the man page. If
this is a compile mistake on cygwin's part, I'll be happy to report it there.
