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).
