I'd be particularly interested if you find one which works when
there's not enough space, or on faulty disks... :)

Yes, it's normal that it fails in these cases. But it's not normal
that it is not able to recover from it without removing all
increments. For example, in case of corruption, it should ignore all
corrupted files, but it should not completely prevent creating new
backups or prevent restoring correct backups. Now it seems all
rdiff-backup operations are completely blocked until you manually
remove all increments, even of files which are not corrupted. This is
unacceptable for me. I had never such experiences with Bacula.
