If you're running at least 2.6.4, use the -i option to see a summary of
what differences rsync sees between the pairs of files.  For instance, a
summary like this:

>f..t.... foobar.baz

Tells you that the timestamp was different (t) and that the file (f) was
transferred to a local destination (>).  Once you know what is different
about the files, you'll be able to investigate how those differences got
