Hi,  I hope this is the right place to post this... I came across this 
old unsolved post that is describing the exact problem i am having, 
tried emailing the author but the email bounced.

Basically files on the destination get deleted if I use any of the 
--delete options.  As if it does not see that those file are indeed in 
the source.  I haven't found any solution online or in the rsync manpage. 
If anyone knows what the problem could be then please let me know.
