OSX rsync Character set problems

rsync can experience problems when backing up with devices that use different character sets to one another. For example, I use rsync to backup from Ubuntu to OSX, but saw frequent errors with some files that had odd names.

The solution, as mentioned in the FAQ, required me to download a more up-to-date version (3.1.0dev protocol version 31.PR2) than currently installed on my system (version 2.6.9 protocol version 29).
