Comment 1 Enrico Scholz 2005-11-29 14:04:19 UTC
accordingly http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/OLDNEWS, this seems to be fixed in
2.6.5+

Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 11:32:11 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Thanks.
