As long as the file's modification time and size are identical on the
source and destination, the files will not be copied.  So, as long as
you're preserving the file's time (via -a or -t), all should be well.
So the first thing to look into is listing those attributes on both
sides and seeing if they match (you should list the mod-time down to
the second if you want to see if they really match).

You can also try the --modify-window=1 if the problem is that the
timestamps on the receiving side are off-by-one from the sending side.
