If you specify triple verbosity (-vvv), the sender will output a message
for every file that gets passed into make_file().

Another approach is to use a utility that displays system-calls (on un*x
systems this is something like strace or truss).  The rsync website has
a debug script that can be used to turn on system-call-tracing for the
remote end of the connection (if that is needed, and if your Windows
setup supports that).
