I believe I have found a synchronization bug in rsync. I have a pair of 
files, which when synced with||
|rsync --no-whole-file --inplace -S|||
|are not| identical afterwards. All three options are required, if I 
remove any one of the the files sync correctly. I have put the two 
files, along with a minimal test script, in this GitHub repo:

This looks like a bug to me; am I missing something? If it is a bug, I'm 
happy to create an issue in GitHub.
