as reported by David Leverton in Gentoo bug 193243:

mkdir remove-src-files-tst
cd remove-src-files-tst
mkdir src dst
for i in `seq -w 0 99`; do touch src/$i; done
rsync --recursive --remove-source-files --dry-run --verbose src/ dst/

it gets up to 49 and then hangs

tested with rsync-2.6.9 and rsync-3.0.0 with same behavior
