rsync leaving partial files if interrupted

This has finally bugged me just enough to ask how to solve it.

If I interrupt an RSYNC process a partial file gets left behind. It's usually a hidden file, a dot, the file name and a random suffix.

I don't know why the partial file is left around, if I restart the transfer it doesn't resume, so how do I get rsync to clean up if it's interrupted?

Thanks for any insights!

Ahhh it's a bug

I see now that it's a bug.

I thought I'd seen this this behaviour forever, but the comment is " will once again clean-up its temp file from the destination dir." so I'm left wondering when it broke?

Anyone have the syntax handy to find and rm these? I'm thinking something like find -name ".*.??????" -exec echo {} \; replacing the echo with rm -vi if the list looks good.
