AW: trying to figure out how the --delete option works.

This was the problem. There were some IO errors reading some files from the
/proc/ directory, and then rsync won't delete any files at all.
From the man:
If the sending side detects any IO errors then the deletion of
any files at the destination will be automatically disabled.
This is to prevent temporary filesystem failures (such as NFS
errors) on the sending side causing a massive deletion of files
on the destination. You can override this with the ‐‐ignore�
Thank you anyway for helping me to keep trying.
