--- Comment #11 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> ---
I have added some code that makes sure that --daemon and --server can never be
aliased to any other value. The code has always disabled popt aliases during
the parsing of a daemon or server command-line, but if the main option itself
was removed then rsync wouldn't know to disable aliases. This new code
overrides any system or user alias to ensure that can never happen.
