how can this be: "file has vanished" in --list-only?

I'm getting "file has vanished" messages during a (recursive)
--list-only. I find it strange because I'd expect rsync to access each
file only once when just sending the receiver the file list. In which
circumstances can this happen? This is with 3.0.6 in linux.
