Well if it's by design I will not go further. But for me it's a missing
"feature" because one has to prepare the list beforehand while rsync could do
the job "while it's there".  
It's like the impossibility to sync files newer than specific date, which I
really miss, but it's another story. Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the detailed example and explanation it's exactly what happens to
And if you remove the "--files-from" you see that "cache" folder is really
excluded from the copy.
I was wondering why the behavior is different applying the "--files-from" or
not and unfortunately WayneD said it's by design.
Thanks for your help
