accordingly http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/OLDNEWS, this seems to be fixed in
Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:32:11 EST
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 ?
