Actually it seems the specific issue I was seeing was related to --fuzzy and
the fact that the destination machine is a NAS (so much slower than my main
machine); even though there was no actual need for fuzzy matching to take
place, it presumably forces rsync to wait for the full folder list on the
receiving side before it can be sure there aren't any matches for new files.

With --fuzzy removed there is no noticeable delay before changes start getting
sent; still takes a while, but that's just the 32,000+ items and the copying,
rather than the additional delay I was seeing.

Anyway, I suppose I'll have to resolve the issue by doing my normal --fuzzy
command with an exclude rule for the disk image, and then run a separate sync
without --fuzzy for just the disk image.

I've posted issue #10581 with some proposals for tuning fuzzy performance to
avoid this for a general purpose command.
