So...based on this...it seems like Dirvish thinks the files in the VAULT 
are different from the ones in the source path!    It HAS to be that 
because it doesn't make sense that the files in the source directories 
would be changing.

hmm....So...then because the HFS updates the destination files with 
metadata....the files are always different?? Does that sound like a 
correct observation to everyone?
