2.2.14rc1 - dsync in backup mode still changes source permissions

It seems we are still able to reproduce this:

However... there's no longer any error-messages. It just silently 
changes permissions on some dovecot files in the source maildir. (most 
often dovecot-uidlist)

We're running dsync as root, with hardwired userdb values for other 
reasons. So it has the OS permissions to change source. But still, 
running in "backup" shouldn't change source ever, should it?

The command line is of this format - running on destination-host:

# dsync -R -o mail_home=/users/user/maildir backup ssh -c arcfour -o 
StrictHostKeyChecking=no -i /root/.ssh/id-rsa-dsync source-host "dsync 
-o mail_home=/users/user/maildir"
