Just FYI, AFAIK, that error messages indicates that
/tmp/.spamassassin79900xjkUNtmp existed on the client when rsync started
running but did not exist when rsync finished (i.e. something on the
client system deleted the file) ['started' and 'finished' are
approximate terms here].
The message commonly occurs when active temporary directories are
backed-up, I believe. I never backup temporary directories myself.
