I reproduced the issue the same way, I meant just creating a directory in my
backed-up tree with the name of a just-deleted file, this file remaining in the
link-dest folder.

I'm not sure the opposite (an existing directory used as if it were a file)
exists, as several tests (stating, opening) must be performed by rsync on files
before using them.
Though I did not go through the whole code path looking for such a case.
