DO NOT REPLY [Bug 3740] --delete with -a failes with warning (though -a is supposed to imply -r)

One sample command from script is:

rsync --size-only -a -z --partial -L --delete \
    --exclude-from=excludefile \
    $srcHostDir \

The emailed output from the cron job contains only:

> rsync: --delete does not work without -r or -d.
> rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1231) [client=2.6.8]
