To check file contnets you need -c.  Without that you're comparing size and
mtime, and the capital T is just telling you that the required file
transfer (due to those not matching) is going to set the mtime to "now".
 You could also try --size-only, but I don't recommend it (since files
sometimes change content w/o changing size).

There are several ways to speed-up a checksum transfer if you find that it
is too slow.  The patch checksum-updating.diff handles that via text files
inside the file hierarchy. The db.diff patch handles it via external
databases (mysql or sqlite are currently supported).  I have been updating
db.diff for the 3.1.0 version just recently since I started to use it at
work recently.
