Rsync only supports such a complex transfer using relative partial-dir values
at this time.  I'm changing this to an enhancement request, since the
limitations of absolute partial-dirs is fully specified in the man page as how
things are currently designed:

"Note also that you should not use an absolute path to bf(--partial-dir) unless
(1) there is no chance of any of the files in the transfer having the same name
(since all the updated files will be put into a single directory if the path is
absolute) and (2) there are no mount points in the hierarchy (since the delayed
updates will fail if they can't be renamed into place)."
