While the user should not be getting themselves into this situation (if they're
smart about it), it is good for rsync to help the user not shoot themselves in
the foot.  I have made rsync re-stat the file and skip the remove if the size
or mtime is different.

This will be fixed in 3.1.0.  I've also added some helpful hints in the manpage
on how best to use --remove-source-files.
