I tested --partial-dir on my computer, and when I kill rsync manually by
pressing Ctrl-C, the behavior is as I said.

Rsync needs to be aware that the connection has dropped in order to
clean up after itself and store the partial file.  Maybe it is waiting
forever to read data from the connection.  If so, you might be able to
fix the problem by passing a --timeout.  If that doesn't help, please
strace the remote rsync by passing
	--rsync-path="strace -f -o rsync.log rsync"
and inspecting rsync.log on the remote machine afterwards.
