Rsync sending files that haven't been updated.

Yes, I assumed that was the problem, but I removed the -t option for a
reason. I am syncing between Windows and Linux and it was keeping the
timestamps from the Windows side when copying to Linux. Even though both
systems had the same system time, the timestamp was always one hour ahead of
what it should be. This is a definite problem because I have a script
running on the Linux side that checks for updated files by the timestamp.
