Perfectly understandable. As for now a hint in the in the manpage (or at
runtime, when 'stale' .~tmp~ directories are encountered) should suffice, since
the current behaviour can lead to unexpected (and unexplainable) disk-space

At least my (and probably others too) assumption of rsync was, that a "rsync
--delete src/ dest/" ensured that the two trees are identical, and
--delay-updates silently breaks this assumption.
