I'm using an ssh trigger that runs a bash script.

The script does some sanity check on the rsync command that was
passed to it, runs the command, logs the exit code and returns it.
But as I was preparing an excerpt to show to you, I see that I have
a bug that will always log and return an exit code of zero.  Urk.

OK.  So that might explain the non-daemon situation.  I'll fix
this and watch for a real-world vanished file situation again.

But as I mentioned, it also happens with a daemon (that does not
use ssh or any intermediate script).  Output from a daemon sync:

The corresponding rsyncd.log entries:

There is no error indication in the log, either of the vanished file
or that a non-zero exit code was returned to the client.
