The detect-renamed patch is an amazing patch with one problem:  It doesn't
work when a file is moved to a directory that doesn't exist on the
receiving end.  In this case it reverts to transferring the entire file.
 This problem is easily solved by a simple change to the
detect-renamed.diff patch in this ticket:

Any chance this improvement could make it into the next version?
