You're right that the IOERR_GENERAL flag (which corresponds to that message)
stops all destination files from being deleted.  But it is only supposed be set
when there is an error that might lead to the omission of existing source files
from the file list.  A run-of-the-mill vanished file should not set the flag. 
If you have a reproducible case in which it does, please file a separate bug.
