Hi Tim,

At first glance, I don't see anything obvious, but if it were me, I'd
do the following:

a) add the 'n' flag to do a dry run (no actual copying)

b) increase rsync's verbosity
   (A single -v will give you information about what files are being
   transferred and a brief summary at the end. Two -v options (-vv)
   will give you information on what files are being skipped and
   slightly more information at the end. A third 'v' is insanely

c) redirect standard out to a text file that you can examine for more

hth & regards,
