--- Comment #1 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
By default rsync does delete the incomplete file when it is aborted.  The
override for that is --partial (which is implied by -P).

However, it also depends on how the rsync is interrupted.  If it crashed or was
killed then it wouldn't have the opportunity to clean up.  If network
connectivity was lost then it is possible that the sshd and rsync are actually
still running waiting to receive the rest of that file.
