I have searched the rsync pages and google but were not able to find any 
information about when the log files are written.
Is this done in between the process of transfering the files or will the 
log file be written after all files have been transfererd ?

What I basically try to find an answer to is: Is it possible that there 
is a difference in what has been transfered and what was written to the 
log ? E.g. when rsync gets killed (or dies) in the middle of the process ?
