strange file sizes in log

I have noticed something regarding this:
running the following command from a WinXP:
rsync -av --progress --stats -e "ssh -l julian -i rsync_key" \
gives the following log output on the receiving side (rsync 2.6.9 / suse):
2007/01/09 10:12:14  sent 44 bytes received 88307 bytes total size
which is good.
Running the EXACT same command on the XP side,
*but this time with the --delete option*,
gives the following in the logs on the linux receiver side:
2007/01/09 10:13:46  sent 44 bytes received 88319 bytes total size
Note change in total size.
I can safely say from a couple of tests that this behaviour is the same when
using the rsync daemon on port 873 rather than ssh.
Also, I noticed that the receiver never reports the correct number of
received bytes (it is always around 88000 as seen above, irrespective of the
files it updates).
The sending side (2.6.8 / XP) reports all sizes correctly.
Can someone please replicate or am I missing something?

I guess its no longer relevant.
This is the module on the linux side:
path = /FILES
read only = false
uid = root
gid = root
incoming chmod = g-rwx,o-rwx
list = false
