rsync -av --delete /myfolder/ 192.168.20.200::myfolder
in order to sync all files (and remove deleted ones) with the file
On the latter there is an rsync server running.
The problem is that since a couple of weeks ago, when running the
script, I get a full list of the directories and not just the changed
....and so on (hundreds of lines)

a few bytes sent and received.
The strange thing is that if I run the script more than once in
succession, it only happens the first time..... I wait a few minutes
and retry.. and it happens again.
I tried everything from syncing the time on the 2 machines to deleting
some directories on the file server to "refresh" the process... but in
