bug#15737: 24.3; copy-directory ignores copy-contents when using tramp

From: Kyle Mahan
Subject: bug#15737: 24.3; copy-directory ignores copy-contents when using tramp
Date: Sun, 27 Oct 2013 09:58:53 -0700

Trying to copy the contents of a local directory to a remote one (trying
to get behavior like "scp -r src/* address@hidden:dest/") , I noticed that
the "copy-contents" flag is (silently?) ignored when the destination is
remote. So the directory, rather than its contents is copied to the
destination. To reproduce:

;; terminal:
;; address@hidden ~]$ mkdir /tmp/source /tmp/dest-local /tmp/dest-remote
;; address@hidden ~]$ touch /tmp/source/file

(copy-directory "/tmp/source" "/tmp/dest-local" nil nil t)
(copy-directory "/tmp/source" "/address@hidden:/tmp/dest-remote" nil nil t)

;; terminal:
;; address@hidden ~]$ ls /tmp/dest-local/
;; file
;; address@hidden ~]$ ls /tmp/dest-remote/
;; source/

Thanks :)
