rsync with delete option creates and deletes dot files

Samba - rsync mailing list
All,
I have an rsync based backup process which uses rsyncd on the source,
to backup to a directory on the client.

I have rsync version 3.1.2 on the client and 2.6.8 on the source host
(daemon).

The rysnc command I use is;

/usr/bin/rsync -aHzS --partial --numeric-ids --delete --timeout=3600 \
                     --contimeout=180 \
                     --exclude-from=/path/to/excludelist  \
                     --log-file=/path/to/logfile \
       <sourcehostname>::host_backup /path/to/dest_dir

The rsync log on the client shows the following;

<quote>
2017/05/01 04:19:41 [90534] receiving file list
2017/05/01 04:20:03 [90534] *deleting   bin/.zcat.19441
2017/05/01 04:20:03 [90534] *deleting   bin/.gzip.19441
...
</quote>

Is this normal, or is there some configuration I am missing ?

Thanks

--delete means delete from the target what isn't on the source (except
what is excluded).  Those look like temp files.  Possibly from another
rsync that is running at the same time.
