You can either add an exclude, which will be easy to do if you don't
have any other dot files (e.g. --exclude='.*').  The other option is
to use the --temp-dir option to have rsync put its temporary files in
a directory outside the transfer directory (choose a temp dir on the
same filesystem, though, so that it will be renamed atomically).
