Many processes (browsers, file managers, terminals, image viewers...)
keep temporary files in places like
~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/$RANDOM/cache2/ . These files are (often)
super-ephemeral, so they may be there when rsync builds its file list,
and not be there when rsync actually tries to transfer the file. Most
of the time, this is not worth worrying about.
