            Bug ID: 12569
           Summary: Missing directory errors not ignored
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

When using --delete-missing-args and --ignore-errors with a a file list it
terminates anyway if one directory, that is not a sub of root, is not existing.


~$ mkdir -p src/a trg/a
~$ echo "/a/b/c" > list
~$ /usr/local/bin/rsync -slt --ignore-errors --force --ignore-missing-args
--delete-missing-args --files-from=list --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync src
file has vanished: "/home/axel/src/a/b"
ABORTING due to invalid path from sender: a/b/c
rsync error: protocol incompatibility (code 2) at generator.c(1270)

Following patch fixes it for me, albeit it ignores this kind of error now

Now the exit code is 24, partial transfer, as would be expected.
