The files are in different directories.

Ok, I see.
Well, if the number of items isn't the problem, then, why is it not working?
I tried to debug by using the verbose flag:
[client] add_rule(- backup-scripts)
cmd=ssh -p 1234 machine=myhost user=test path=/source/
cmd=ssh cmd=-p cmd=1234 cmd=-l cmd=test cmd=myhost
cmd=rsync cmd=--server cmd=--sender cmd=-vvvvvvvLogtprze.iL
cmd=--numeric-ids cmd=. cmd=/source/
opening connection using: ssh -p 1234 -l test myhost rsync --server
--sender -vvvvvvvLogtprze.iL --numeric-ids . /source/
note: iconv_open("UTF-8", "UTF-8") succeeded.
(Client) Protocol versions: remote=30, negotiated=30
receiving file list ...
