Right, the man page says that -a doesn't imply -r when --files-from is enabled. 

If you can reproduce the incorrect behavior of recursing even without -r and
you have rsync 2.6.8 on both machines, we should investigate further.  I could
not reproduce it.  I set up a scenario with password authentication and the
following command:
    rsync -avzP --files-from=list --delete --ignore-errors localhost:tmp/src/
Rsync correctly did not recurse into a directory I named in the --files-from
