[Bug 10522] --detect-renamed patch is causing deletions as if a 'delete flag' was supplied, when none have been

I was wondering why my primary NAS was empty the other day..

It seems that my data was saved by -b option and related parameters, because all my data was hidden in the “Trashcan” -folder on the archive NAS.

I’m using rsync to make a safety copy of all files on my primary NAS:

rsync -vrtb --backup-dir=/mnt/archive/trashcan/ --suffix=".deleted-$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S)" --del -f "P *trashcan*" /mnt/nas/ /mnt/archive/

Is this bug to be blamed for emptying my primary NAS?
