           Summary: resource fork handling is broken in 3.1.0
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: bugzilla-samba at narthex.bantha.org
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

In rsync 3.1.0, when rsyncing between two Macs running OS X (I've tried with
both Mountain Lion and Snow Leopard), rsync -vaX chokes on files with resource
forks, with the following error message:

$ rsync -vaX test2-20131116 remotehost:/tmp/
sending incremental file list
need to write 836037 bytes, iobuf.out.buf is only 65532 bytes.
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at io.c(599) [sender=3.1.0]

Note that the directory "test2-20131116" contained a single file with a
836037-byte resource fork.  (Perhaps the problem arises only with resource
forks larger than some default buffer size?)

Both sides of this attempted transfer were running rsync 3.1.0.  When, instead,
both sides were running rsync 3.0.9, there was no error message and the
resource fork transferred (apparently) correctly.
