as reported by David Leverton in Gentoo bug 193243:
mkdir src dst
for i in `seq -w 0 99`; do touch src/$i; done
rsync --recursive --remove-source-files --dry-run --verbose src/ dst/
it gets up to 49 and then hangs
tested with rsync-2.6.9 and rsync-3.0.0 with same behavior

Fix a hang when using --remove-source-files and --dry-run
This patch is for the development version, but is also relevant for 2.6.9.
This is now fixed in the git repository. Thanks for the report!
