This is your problem:
> 2015/01/31 17:25:58 [12091] rsync: readlink_stat("/home/myuser/.gvfs") failed: Permission denied (13)

If rsync hits any error it aborts the deletion process which it would have said
without -q.  You can override that with --ignore-errors but better to
--exclude=.gvfs since it isn't a real file/dir/filesystem.

Also, if you are making backups you should really look into rsync --link-dest
or an rsync based backup system if you don't feel like scripting it.

Also, --delete-before is much slower than --delete-during which is the default
version of --delete.
