Identical files showing in dry-run

I've got a problem with rsync 2.6.2 on Solaris/SPARC (one system is
Solaris 8, the other is Solaris 9). I'm trying to get a list of files
that have changed on one server (a development web server) and another
(a live web server).
I am using rsync as follows :-
rsync -Icrn --exclude='.svn' --stats -e "ssh" [source dir]
[user at webserver:dest dir]
As far as I understand, this should stop rsync from using "quick" checks
such as file size and modified time (-I), and forces it to look at the
checksums of each file (-c), as well as missing out any Subversion
However, each time I try this, instead of showing only the files that
have changed, it returns a list of every file in the source directory.
Most of these files are identical on both servers - a check using
gmd5sum on both systems confirms this.
The same thing happens when I use different criteria, such as --size-only.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong, or what I should be doing ?
Thanks in advance,
