This is not a bug.  You should first post to the mailing list,
rsync at, unless you are pretty sure you have a bug rather than a

"Number of files" is the number of source files rsync considered on the current
run, including all types (directories, etc.).  "Number of files transferred" is
the number of regular files that rsync transferred because the destination did
not have an up-to-date copy.  Directories probably account for the difference
you saw.

No, in the output you posted, the "Total file size" and "Total transferred file
size" are both 24010667438 bytes.

>       Literal data  >  Total bytes sent

Again, this is not true in the output you posted.  But one way that could
happen is the -z option.
