Hi Chris,

I've now cleared up the mess a little, removed all the BSD stuff (that
I can find) and have done a clean installation of 1.1.15 on the Linux
remote. My backups now work, though I do have to use "--remote-schema
'ssh -C %s /home/isbd/bin/rdiff-backup --server' to make it work.  I'm
not quite clear why this should be as my PATH includes /home/isbd/bin
but it's not a big problem.

Non-login shells (such as ssh with a command) do not usually read your profile or bashrc, and therefore normally miss out on any custom environment variables, aliases, etc. If you need this, run a shell, such as 'ssh -C %s bash rdiff-backup --server', or write a wrapper script for rdiff-backup.

Cheers, Chris.
