Try changing --delete to --delete-after and see if your timeout problem
either goes away or switches to after the files are transferred.  If so,
the pause for the receiver to build a list of files to allow it to
figure out what to delete is timing out.  The only solution to that (at
the moment) is to increase the timeout.
