--- Comment #3 from Daniel <daniel-inet at gmx.net> ---
Have been picking on the problem.

I think that the problem with files which already exist in destination but are
transferred again is not caused by rsync but by a time comparison mismatch
which can occur when timestamp accuracy differs between source and destination

It would be nice to add something to the manpage, section "--modify-window",
that this option makes sense when timestamp accuracy of source and destination
filesystem differs.

The reported problem remains that files are missing in the destination (and
reported to have been transfered at a speed greater than possible)
