No, that's not normal at all, and I can't reproduce such a situation.  I
always see a return code of 23 from rsync if it can't copy a file into a
directory (and also an error about the inability to open the temp file
in the unwritable directory).  Do you have a script, function, or alias
that could be stripping away the return code?
