Rsync display count of files during list building

I just upgraded my laptop to Kubuntu Jaunty and now doing rsync commands via SSH is not displaying the count of the list of files it builds between each sync.

Does anyone know how to make it manually display?

My rsync version: version 3.0.5 protocol version 30
My rsync options on command line: --recursive -avul --progress --delete

Example output:

rsync --recursive -avul --progress --delete --rsh="ssh -p 1234" /home/bob/presets/ bob@
stty: standard input: Invalid argument
sending incremental file list
sent 7732 bytes  received 30 bytes  1411.27 bytes/sec
total size is 1188830  speedup is 153.16

Did you try using --stats on the command line?

That does help, so thank you. It's not quite what I meant though.

Using --stats (which I did not know about until now) prints a post-transfer summary.

Previously, rsync used to list how many files it was scanning before sending the list. I suspect since the list is now incremental (it may not have been before) that is the reason for the change in behavior.
