This is now fixed in the git repository.

This bug could also affect runs that did not use --link-dest:

If a file was transferred w/o any xattr changes, and a later file needed to
update its xattrs to be the same as the earlier file, the receiver and the
generator had different ideas about what was still abbreviated (and the
receiver died with an error).

Thanks for the helpful test case!
