Hash: SHA1

Seems to work when I tried it.  Is the directory listed when you run
it?  What does --itemize-changes say?

My first guess is that it would be an interaction between --checksum
and --ignore-times which are fairly opposite functions and --checksum
is usually the wrong thing to use.

Also btw, you don't need -p -R or -e "ssh".

Also, use ./ instead of ./*  This wouldn't affect your current command
but it would if you were using --delete so I consider it a bad habit.
