rsync and file device



Very annoying bug with rsync.
It seams it has been introduced in rsync-2.6.1-0.pre1 . I don't see this
problem with FC2T1 (and perhaps FC2T2).

# rpm -q rsync
rsync-2.6.1-0.pre1

example :
# cd /
# rsync --archive dev /tmp/
# ll dev/vcs56 tmp/dev/vcs56
crw--w----  1 vcsa tty 7, 56 fév 23 22:02 dev/vcs56
crw--w----  1 vcsa tty 7, 14 fév 23 22:02 tmp/dev/vcs56
# ll dev/video1394/0 tmp/dev/video1394/0
crw-------  1 root root 171, 16 fév 23 22:02 dev/video1394/0
crw-------  1 root root 171, 19 fév 23 22:02 tmp/dev/video1394/0

another example :
# cd /
# find dev -depth -print0 | cpio -p --null -a -m -d tmp
# rsync --verbose --archive dev tmp/        # no file should be updated
building file list ... done

With kernel-2.6.5-1.327 and kernel-2.6.5-1.349.

Anyone else can confirm this ?
