	Weeks ago I tried this *without* the --exclude flags and
	overwrote DOT file that I didn't want to.  Iust rechecked this
	use of rsync, saving important files from my work server
	elseswhere, and see that some files or directories are being
	listed and copied over.  IDoes anything obvious jump out here?



   rsync -Cptuvaz -n -e "ssh -i /home/kline/.ssh/tao_XXXYYYZZZ-id" \
       --exclude /home/kline/.zlogin  \
       --exclude /home/kline/.zshrc  \
       --exclude /home/kline/.zhistory.*  \
       --exclude /home/kline/.ctwrm  \
       --exclude /home/kline/.mozilla  \
       --exclude /home/kline/.evolution  \
       --exclude /home/kline/4zip/  \
       --exclude '/home/kline/www/'  \
       /home/kline kline at ethos:/home/kline
   if [ $? =  0 ]
      echo "rsync transfer went okay: tao to ethos"
      echo "rsync failed to ethos from /home/kline"|mail kline at
