I've tried the command you specified (supplying my own list of exclusions, since
you didn't mention any) and it reports deletions as expected.  Keep in mind two

1. When log-format specifies %i, deletes are logged using the log-format you
specified with "*delete" in the %i field.

2. When -x is specified, any mounted directories will be excluded from the
deletions (that would be any dirs are mounted inside /mnt/backupboot, not if
that dir itself is mounted).

If that doesn't help you, I'll need more information on what is going wrong. 
You might also try removing the -R option (which shouldn't make any difference,
but it's not needed with a source path of "/").
