Problem with --times and setgid dir when user not member of the group

Samba - rsync mailing list
When copying locally as well as remotely inside a setgid dir, the option
--times has the unwanted side effect of making the newly created
directories not have the setgid bit set, but only when the user running
rsync is not a member of the corresponding group.  The extra option
--omit-dir-times prevents the loss of the setgid bit in this case.

Is this a bug as I think it is?  Note that files 2-levels deep in the
copied hierarchy do not have the group set to the one of the setgid
directory containing the hierarchy.

Here is a test log:

$ mkdir dir test
$ touch dir/file
$ chmod 0750 dir
$ chmod 2750 test
$ sudo chgrp games test
$ groups |grep games
$ rsync -r dir test
$ ls -l test
total 4
drwxr-s--- 2 guest games 4096 Jan  4 06:43 dir/
$ rm -rf test/dir
$ rsync -rt dir test
$ ls -l test
total 4
drwxr-x--- 2 guest games 4096 Jan  4 06:32 dir/
$ rm -rf test/dir
$ rsync -rtO dir test
$ ls -l test
total 4
drwxr-s--- 2 guest games 4096 Jan  4 06:43 dir/
$ rm -rf test/dir
