--- Comment #2 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> ---
You'd probably be better served by asking about something like this on the
mailing list, as there is no issue with .* concerning rsync -- this is entirely
a shell issue.

In this instance you're probably using bash, which is so stupid that it expands
".*" to include "..", which is obviously not what you want.  I personally use
zsh, which doesn't have this issue.

When using bash, you could instead try a "path/.??*" (if all your dot files are
at least 2 chars after the dot) or something like ".[a-z]*" (though you might
also need A-Z and 0-9 etc added).

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the QA Contact for the bug.
