rsync -axR /tmp/a /tmp/b                                            # This works fine
rsync --no-inc-recursive -avxR a /tmp/b /tmp/c        # This works fine at this moment

mkdir a/a/a
mkdir a/a/b

rsync --no-inc-recursive -avxR a /tmp/b /tmp/c         #  Same command fails after creating new directories
