i read the archived post at:

and was wondering whether this is documented/discussed elsewhere. i have 
had two such occurences myself recently, where rsync completed 
successfully, but the files don't get sync-ed (the target file is 
garbled). in one case i had a +- 25MB tar.bz2 file and the other +- 20MB 
tar.gz. i used rsync 2.4.6, librsync 0.9.5, redhat 7.2). only after i 
added the -c option (checksum) did the files get synced properly.
