Thats not valid, you cannot easily guarantee that youve not copied files that
were in the progress of being written to. Use a recovery_command if you do not
want all files to be transferred via the replication connection. But do that
only for files that have been archived via an archive_command beforehand.
Did you have a backup label in the rsync'ed datadir? In Maxim's case I could
detect that he had not via line numbers, but I do not see them here...
