Thank you, it wasn't timestamps, but group id inconsistency (the source,
in this case is a Windows box, ids are always tricky).
You put me on the right track anyway, I had not realised how useful
--itemize-changes can be.
I must rewrite the group ID after transfer, because the destination gid
(special group), is neither the source (users) nor the invoking id
(root) and I see no option to rewrite it in rsync.
The Sun is out, the sky is blue, it's time to drive the MR2.
