[rear-users] Local RD1000 - rsync - restore error

Hi! - What a great set of scripts!

I encountered an issue when trying to restore due to the entry of 
BACKUP_PROG_OPTIONS="--anchored" in conf/default.conf.
rsync does not have an option "--anchored", so the restore fails, 
grub-install fails, etc.
The backup works... so it must not be picked up during "rear mkbackup" - 
only during the restore operation.
I was able to use the rear shell option and manually restore everything 
and run grub-install.
Setting BACKUP_PROG_OPTIONS="" in /usr/share/rear/conf/default.conf 
fixes the problem and a complete backup and restore works.
I'm not sure how to parameterize the option... It appears to have been a 
fix, but not for the configuration I selected (see below).
