Using the --delete switch to rsync with a large number of files causes
the rsync process to use large amounts of virtual memory with recent
snapshots, including 20051216. With a DLL built from CVS on 20051110,
this doesn't happen.
The easiest way I found to reproduce it was to run the command:
% rsync -avRP --delete --exclude='*~' /usr /etc /sbin /some/dest
twice. The second time, the rsync process will consume hundreds of MB of
memory. With the 20051110 snapshot, the rsync process stays under 9 MB.
