Here's the relevant item from the NEWS file for 2.6.5:

 - Fixed a case where rsync would erroneously delete some files and then
   re-transfer them when the options --relative (-R) and --recursive
   (-r) were both enabled (along with --delete) and a source path had a
   trailing slash.

(The underlying problem was a weird sorting glitch in the file list.
I'll also mention that 2.6.9 is the latest version.)
