Created attachment 6606 [details]
example file to compare

No difference seen between two files but diff is positive.
It's impossible to include two files, so the contents of config.2 is below.

command:
rsync -Cavzin config.1 config.2

output:
-bash-3.00# rsync -Cavzin config.1 config.2
sending incremental file list
>f..t...... config.1

sent 51 bytes  received 15 bytes  132.00 bytes/sec
total size is 80  speedup is 1.21 (DRY RUN)


config.2:
# config
<parameters>
  proxy_traf		   xxx
  #proxy_traf		   xxxx
</parameters>

As the itemized output indicates, the modify time isn't the same.  See the --checksum option for one possible solution.  See also --size-only, but be REALLY sure you know what you're doing if you use that.

I know the time modified should be different but I would expect this output:
>f.st...... config.1

In config.1 the commented lines are number 1 and 3.
In config.2 the commented lines are number 1 and 4.

It's impossible to tell without the second file attached, but I assume the only difference is that the hash (#) moved, which means the size isn't different, so 's' shouldn't show up.
