Replying to your two latest posts.

When I use the log-format with the %i I do see some files to be deleted, but not

I don't tend to backup across mounted partitions, so I use -x inorder to not
ending up then an everending backup, as the dest can be reached from /, which is
from where I do the back up.

I have not removed the -R. So my command now looks like:
rsync -avrWxn --delete --delete-excluded --log-format='%i %f'
--exclude-from=/home/maj/.rsync-exclude-bootlist / /mnt/backupboot

The files that are not being deleted seams to be in

This is from the source side:
/# du -hsm lib/ usr/ var/
666     lib/
3183    usr/
102     var/

This is from the dest side:
/home/maj/.bin# du -hsm /mnt/backupboot/*
6       /mnt/backupboot/bin
32      /mnt/backupboot/boot
1       /mnt/backupboot/dev
57      /mnt/backupboot/etc
1       /mnt/backupboot/home
1       /mnt/backupboot/initrd
952     /mnt/backupboot/lib
1       /mnt/backupboot/lost+found
1       /mnt/backupboot/media
1       /mnt/backupboot/misc
1       /mnt/backupboot/mnt
1       /mnt/backupboot/opt
13      /mnt/backupboot/root
16      /mnt/backupboot/sbin
1       /mnt/backupboot/selinux
1       /mnt/backupboot/srv
1       /mnt/backupboot/sys
8       /mnt/backupboot/tmp
3208    /mnt/backupboot/usr
113     /mnt/backupboot/var

--ignore-errors didn't help.

If I look closer in /lib I see

~# du -hsm /lib/modules/
643     /lib/modules/
~# du -hsm /lib/modules/*
5       /lib/modules/2.6.10
101     /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.737_FC3
102     /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.741_FC3
103     /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.760_FC3
103     /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.766_FC3
103     /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3
107     /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.14_FC3
5       /lib/modules/2.6.7
5       /lib/modules/2.6.9
97      /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667
98      /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.681_FC3
98      /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.724_FC3
5       /lib/modules/2.6.9-prep

Notice the 643MB and that the dir. sizes are 932MB

On the dest side:
~# du -hsm /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/
928     /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/
~# du -hsm /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/*
5       /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.10
101     /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.737_FC3
102     /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.741_FC3

107     /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.14_FC3
5       /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.7
5       /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.9
97      /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667
98      /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.681_FC3
98      /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.724_FC3
5       /mnt/backupboot/lib/modules/2.6.9-prep

Notice the 928MB and that the dir. sizes are 932MB

This doesn't make sense to me, how the dest side can be larger than the source
side, and that the dir. sises are the same.

The problems seamed to start when I switched from rsync 2.6.3.
