--protocol=29 solves this behavior for me.  It seems the short circuit behavior
of rsync v3 doesn't check/remember inodes of files in the transfer request but
not currently being transferred.

My setup:
cd /home ; rsync -Hax --link-dest=.. ed edcopy ;

My usage:
cd /backup ;
rsync -PHOhavix --protocol=29 /home wabhome.append/ 

with protocol=29 hardlinks everything perfectly, after I watch the file list
count up.  Without, it copies.
