--- Comment #3 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> ---
Yes, if you tell rsync to copy the symlinks it does it. If you have one or more
looping symlinks then you need to exclude them from the copy or not use
--copy-links. As for the other error, you need to use --delete or --force to
copy over a non-empty directory, as mentioned in the man page.
