Distributed testing rsync mangles some sym links

Issue #70 resolved

Hi Holger,

For distributed testing rsync does not handle some sym links correctly.

On the source host if there is a sym link:

baz foo -> baz fullfoo -> /full/path/to/baz

Then on the target host after the rsync the short sym link is broken:

baz foo -> name/baz fullfoo -> /full/path/to/baz

foo is now a broken link where the "name" is actually the arg given to rsync (i.e. --rsyncdir name).

    Hi Meme. Could you try out installing

    http://hudson.testrun.org/view/pytest/job/execnet-sdist/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/.tox/dist/execnet-1.0.8a1.zip

    into your environment and see if it fixes the rsync-symlink and rsync-file permission issue?

    thanks, holger
