Sorry for spamming, but I just realised what you meant when you wrote:

You can use the --checksum option to avoid this unneeded update at the expense
of a lot of extra disk I/O to compute each file's checksum before figuring out
if a transfer is needed.

If rsyns is _not_ checksumming files, why does rsyns remain in this state:

building file list ... 
1 file to consider

for maybe 30 minutes when it transfers my big file?
