--- Comment #12 from Wayne Davison <wayne at opencoder.net> ---
This check was added to try to prevent an untrusted sender from sneaking
through some bad file-list data.  However, the --delete-missing-args option
does seem to have the ability to send these incongruent lists.  I'm thinking
that the best fix is probably to have the sender fudge up the missing parent
dirs if they can be marked as missing like the missing args.  In the meantime,
I'm checking in a slightly different version of Paul's patch that makes the
receiver just complain about the missing parent dir info and continue on (it
does not return or a valid missing arg won't be deleted).
