Keep in mind that the only deletions rsync ever does are in directories that
rsync sends, so if -r is specified and the files-from list contains a directory
name, deletions will occur in that directory's hierarchy (future versions of
rsync will also delete in directories that were transferred with -d w/o -r).

If you're expecting a missing file to turn into a delete, that will not work. 
You'll need to get individual deletions to the remote host in some other way. 
There has been discussion on how to do this on the mailing list (e.g. using ssh
+ xargs, and a method using just rsync with some include/exclude rules).
