--- Comment #5 from Heinz-Willi Wyes <hww at delember-wyes.de> ---
Lars Ellenberg provided a workaround for the behaviour. Using

rsync -d --delete --super `mktemp -d`/ snapshots/2017-05-26-15-00-53/

plays the trick.

Not sure whether the --super option has implications not suitable for other
scenarios. For me it works just fine. Nevertheless, there should be a patch for
rsync in order to overcome the questionable behaviour.
