No, my mail meant that I though you might confused about files being
left over that weren't getting removed because they weren't part of the
transfer.  I do note that you are using --relative to no purpose.  You
could try turning that off.  You should also check to see if rsync is
complaining about an I/O error, which disables deletions.
