This seems wrong to me. If the OS is failing to manage write buffers and file
access between processes, you would have a lot bigger problems in every process
all through the system, and this wouldn't fix it.

Similarly, if rsync were corrupting data, a lot of people would already know
about it. It gets used way too much and too heavily for anything like this to
go unnoticed for more than a day, let alone 15 or more years.

It's almost axiomatic: No matter what problem you think you have, no matter
what language or OS or platform, if you think it's fixed by either sleep() or
sync(), it's not.
