'Invalid cross-device link' on GNU/Linux

Hello, rsync mailing list!

I am running out of space on my compact flash card and want to have rsync use the "--delete-after --delay-updates --partial-dir=/tmpfs" which is mounted as tmpfs.   Once the renaming part of the rsync starts I get "Invalid cross-device link (18)" errors.  I see this is a problem on SPARC is there a way around this with linux?  Any advice would be appreciated.

rsync version 2.6.9 protocol version 29
linux 2.6.24 i586

Thank you!
