Just tripped over this one today.

$ rsync --no-motd rsync://alphageek.dyndns.org/slackware
rsync: link_stat "." (in slackware) failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(1498) [receiver=3.0.1pre2]

$ rsync --no-motd rsync://alphageek.dyndns.org/slackware/slackware-current
drwxr-xr-x 4096 2008/03/26 01:30:27 slackware-current

What strikes me as quite odd is that I also have full backups pulled daily using modules referencing '/' on my machines (with a port other than 873/tcp for added obfuscation) & they're apparently working without error.
