           Summary: rsync does nothing after first time
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: IA64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

         QAContact: rsync-qa at

The initial run with an empty destination directory works as expected.  When
running again rsync halts after "delete_in_dir(.......)" (directory tree

rsync is run locally from command line as root:
rsync -avvvn --del --ignore-errors /var/storage /var/backupdir

initially run with --delete, and -a with same effect.

The last few lines, including exit message when issuing ctrl+c:
[sender] make_file(storage/...,*,2)
[sender] make_file(storage/...,*,2)
[sender] make_file(storage/...,*,2)
send_files(77972, /var/storage/...)
rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at rsync.c(506)
_exit_cleanup(code=20, file=rsync.c, line=506): about to call exit(20)

Full directory tree omitted.

Using Debian Etch.
