Indeed.  This is probably one of many kinds of concurrent modification to the
source that rsync handles ungracefully.

In general, when different system calls return inconsistent results, that could
indicate either a concurrent modification or filesystem misbehavior.  The
downside to always assuming concurrent modification is that we miss the
opportunity to report filesystem misbehavior if it happens.  One example is the
Cygwin "file has vanished" error with foreign characters in filenames ( ).
