If you could post the output of stat for one of your files being backed up 
(and that is being duplicated in each backup when you expect a hardlink to be 
made instead):
	- stat of the master copy
	- stat of the file in one backup
	- stat of the file in another backup

This should help see why rsync is not creating hardlinks...
