I really can't make heads or tails of this error. The error message
seems to indicate that a file that was created as a symlink
("symlinked_file2") is being treated as a directory ("Directory not
empty"). 1.1.11 works perfectly on my Mac, both for backing up to HFS+
volumes and a separate Linux server.

Have you been able to use any other version of 1.1?

Can you try a very simple backup, such as:

$ mkdir test
$ touch test/file
$ rdiff-backup test test.bak

Does that work?

Also, is there anything special about /Volumes/mcneal/ or the way it's
