           Summary: rsync warning: some files vanished
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: toralf.foerster at gmx.de
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

Today I got this message - for the first time as far I can remember :

rsync warning: some files vanished before they could be transferred (code 24)
at main.c(1052) [sender=3.0.9]

It happens at an almost stable Gentoo with kernel 3.3.3, booted from an
external USB disk.

The rsync backup's from that external USB disk to another luks-encrypted USB
disk using these parameters :

--archive --cvs-exclude --delete --delete-excluded --devices
--include-from=/include.list --exclude-from=/exclude.list --itemize-changes

BTW it was the first time, that I accessed the backup disk not directly as
/dev/sdc1, instead I used /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid>
I do the backup nearly daily, so with the given $REF (the directory from the
day before) rsync mostly has to make hard links at the external USB disk.

FWIW the system was under load (~5-6), b/c I run in parallel a compile job
(make -j 2) and was within the dokcing station, all USB disks were atatched
directly to the notebook.
