For that output to occur, they must be. Did you check rsync's earlier
output to see if the --delete option might have deleted the files before
rsync (re-)transferred them? That might happen if something changes the
case of the filenames (such as a filesystem that is mounted to lower-
case all filenames, or a DOS-oriented filesystem that turns any name
that is all-upper-case into lower-case). I've also seen a weird delete
interaction in a rare circumstance using rsync 2.6.4 which was fixed in
2.6.5. Also, make sure that you're looking in exactly the right
destination dir -- sometimes its easy to be looking at the wrong spot.
