           Summary: remove-source-files fails with symlinks
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: x64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: afried at deteque.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

Up thru 3.0.9 transferring symlinks using "-L --remove-source-files" properly
transferred the files and removed the symlinks.

Beginning with 3.1.0 this no longer works; the files transfer properly but the
symlinks on the source server fail to get deleted. This error message is

ERROR: Skipping sender remove for changed file: [transferred file name]

I have not been able to find a workaround to this problem, other than
downgrading from 3.1.0 back to 3.0.9.
