Does rsync output a warning about an I/O error, saying it is disabling
deletes?  You can use --force if you're sure you want rsync to override
that.  You might also try using --dry-run to see if rsync thinks it will
remove a file, but doesn't actually do so in the real run (newer rsync
versions are more verbose about skipped deletions).
