rsync - handling renamed files or directories

http://serverfault.com – I am working on an rsync script for directory replication. I have it syncing only new and modified files or directories but am not liking the fact that its copying renamed files or directories as a new file or directory, keeping the files not in sync. I have also set a bandwidth limit of 1mb (for this will run during business work hours). Here's my script: rsync -zvru --bwlimit=1024 /mymounts/test1/ /mymounts/test2 How can I keep files and directories in sync if someone renames something, with still only copying new or modified files? Here are the files in question ls "/mymounts/test1/som (HowTos)
