Quite so; rsync is known to behave strangely sometimes.
However, if the md5sum is _not_ correct, that means your image is slightly
incorrect and the "default" rsync command won't fix it. The solution for
problem is easy: use a different --block-size, for example 20000 or 123456.
(I've yet got to hear a case in which that doesn't fix it ;-)
