            Bug ID: 13061
           Summary: File lost on case-insensitive file system
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.3
          Hardware: All
                OS: Windows 7
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: wayned at samba.org

On a case-insensitive file system (Windows/cygwin):
I renamed a file to upper case, then ran my backup script using
rsync -r --delete-after src /backup

I got this error message:
rsync: send_files failed to open "/cygdrive/d/home/tools/mined/src/n/x":
Permission denied (13)
IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion

The old (lower case) file was finally deleted in the backup area, but the new
(upper case) file had not been copied to it.
(It was copied of course when I ran rsync again.)
