That's not what I meant. Here is what this example will do on a simple
directory having 2 files matching *.c:

$ ls -lR
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 2 test test 4096 mar 22 01:04 bar.c
-rw-r--r-- 1 test test    0 mar 22 01:04 foo.c

total 0
test at vinci:~/testsrc$ rsync -t *.c ~/testdst/ 
skipping directory bar.c
test at vinci:~/testsrc$ ls -lR ~/testdst/
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 test test 0 mar 22 01:04 foo.c
test at vinci:~/testsrc$

All files in testsrc/ are directory entries of testsrc/. Yet, after the
transfer, even though all of these files match *.c, only some have been
transferred. bar.c was not transferred, since it is a directory and rsync does
not transfer directories unless some options which weren't given are given.
