--- Comment #1 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> ---
You'll have to be more specific, since the fix was implemented in both
inc-recursive and non-inc-recursive modes (in separate fixes). I tested
--protocol=29 and --no-inc-recursive w/o issue (though the older protocol isn't
good enough to make the error visible on a "push" (such as a local copy), since
it doesn't retrieve remote errors like protocol 30 does when the remote side
dies. You can see the error via --msgs2stderr, or just rely on the error's
protocol-incompatibility exit error code.
