Unless/until the filtering patch is fixed, I guess you should go back to
your wrapper that rsyncs one file at a time.  I'm sure we can get -b to
work the way you want it to.  To improve the performance, you could
extend the wrapper to encrypt as many files as it has disk space for an
then call rsync on all of them.  There are also some tricks you can do
to reduce the connection overhead, e.g., use ssh's ControlMaster
