What seems to be happening here is that rsync gets the name of a file via
readdir(), and then tries to stat the file to figure out its type and other
attirbutes, and the stat() (or lstat()) call fails.  This causes rsync to leave
the file out of the file list.  So, the real question is: what is affecting the
stat() calls on your system?  This doesn't sound like an rsync problem.  Are
the files coming from an NFS filesystem?  Perhaps the tweaking of the time
causes a glitch in the NFS protocol?
