Description chdiza 2013-10-16 04:09:15 UTC
On OSX 10.8.5, rsync 3.1.0 introduces a new bug.  Doing:

rsync -ntrlvhb --delete --backup-dir=foo source dest

when the dir "foo" already exists will cause rsync to display: 

"sending incremental file list
Created backup_dir foo/"

I can understand displaying this message if foo really did need to be created, but it's already there and waiting, and has been used as backup-dir before.  3.0.9 and earlier don't do this.

Also, when the same command is run without the '-n' flag, rsync acts correctly and won't display the "Created backup_dir foo/" message.

I'm checking in a fix for this now.  Thanks!
