I have a similar problem. The content of some directories will not get hard
linked but copied instead. The command I use is:

rsync -a \
    --link-dest first_dir \
    --link-dest second_dir \
    /export/home/ \
    --exclude '.mozilla/firefox/*/Cache' \
    --exclude '.mozilla/firefox/*/urlclassifier3.sqlite' \
    --exclude '.Trash/' \

The directory that I found to be copied instead of linked has this full path

/home/pave/rood/atp/Conversion Patterns - atp/

This directory also contains two spaces and a dash (-). Could this be a

rsync --version
rsync  version 3.0.7  protocol version 30
