I'd like to, but I can't. I set up a local scenario in order to make the
problem most easily reproducible. But the real use case involves rsync in a
cloud backup application where I get no acces to the cloud provider's shell.
Using any other possible protocol so as e.g. ftp or cifs is practically not
possible. Each file operation with these protocols requires a roundtrip to my
local server. Such an attempt lasts for hours considering that there are some
100.000 files per snapshot. rsync does this in less than two minutes - but
resets the file permissions.
