--- Comment #1 from Kevin Korb <rsync at sanitarium.net> ---
Unfortunately rync's --checksum is just that dumb.  It checksums *EVERYTHING*
on the source and the target before it does anything else.  Since --checksum is
almost always the wrong thing to do nobody seems to be willing to add basic
intelligence to it.  Unfortunately, what you are trying to do is one of those
few instances when --checksum is the right thing to use.  So, that is just the
way it works.
