comment Stopping rsync without leaving temporary files behind
Raspbian might not be following upstream patches fully perhaps? Anyway, glad we got to the bottom of it!

comment Why is a script in /etc/rc6.d not run on reboot?
When the pi is running, what run level is it in (sudo runlevel might tell you).

It's a bug - fixed in 3.1.1.

@DustByte still no joy, tried two other machines (another Debian, and Ubuntu 15) and your script and can't force the behaviour you're seeing. I don't have access to that specific version of rsync though. Any other software running which might be doing this?

comment How do I force gvfs-unmount a dead SSH mount on Linux Mint 16 (Petra)?
To be fair, not sure, I'd be tempted to recycle the daemon (but don't know what impact that has generally) if this is the only mounted filesystem. Or yes, give 2786 a poke with the pointy stick.

comment Stopping rsync without leaving temporary files behind
Can you just check with alias | grep rsync from whichever user is running the command? The reason for asking these questions is that the default behaviour is supposed to be what you want, so if it's not doing that, something's broken and therefore there's no obvious solution. There are no flags to make rsync behave how you want, because it's supposed to by default and the flags change it to how you don't want.

I assume you have tried bash: !-Em_C3eBU6A: event not found?

Note: Having realised after everything above that I had not used ls -la I re-ran all the tests and still can't see any temporary files even with ls -la

comment How to run an executable file (web app) 24/7 and restart automatically when it breaks down?
Hi, welcome to the Unix StackExchange site. We normally prefer answers to provide detail rather than just link to an offsite resource (even if, in this case, it looks like it might be there a while). That way, it's easier for people to update answers if they become out of date, and doesn't rely on the link working for ever.

Are there any gvfs processing running which relate to the mounted SSH 'share'? Doing some reading, it looks like killing them might be the only option. In other words, what does ps -ef | grep gvfs return (can you add the output of it to the question).
