This is weird, there is no network activity during this building file list
phase. However, as soon as it is finished, rsync saturates my network.

I thought rsync worked, if the file's size and modification date doesn't match,
by creating a binary tree and then checksumming the parts between every node,
recursively to the root of the tree, and then only transferring the parts where
the checksum didn't match.
