Strangely fast run without error

I have a NAS with rsync 3.0.3pre1. I know that is not new,
but a NAS is not easy to update. This usually works fine.
I have set up jobs to backup various stuff to another NAS.

This is the statistics of one run. Though there were seen
files (file size, vmware images) it finished almost immediately
which lead to the funny transfer speed.

receiving incremental file list

Number of files: 125
Number of files transferred: 0
Total file size: 25013819983 bytes
Total transferred file size: 0 bytes
Literal data: 0 bytes
Matched data: 0 bytes
File list size: 2382
File list generation time: 0.001 seconds
File list transfer time: 0.000 seconds
Total bytes sent: 63
Total bytes received: 2425

sent 63 bytes  received 2425 bytes  ,')* bytes/sec
total size is 25013819983  speedup is 10053786.17

This was a one time only thing, afterwards it worked
fine again. Still might be interesting to know what it was
that rsync finished so quickly without an error.
