[rdiff-backup-users] rdiff-backup-statistics mangles stdout

Hi all,

I've found a small bug when rdiff-backup-statistics is redirected it mangles its output. In my case I'm running it in a cron job.

Looking at the code, this is because the system calls are interleaved with its own printed output but without flushing stdout first.

The following fixes this:

def system(cmd):
    if os.system(cmd): sys.exit("Error running command '%s'\n" % (cmd,))

Could I also suggest the lines printing "Processing statistics from session..." are redirected to stderr or a commandline "quiet" switch is added to suppress them as they aren't very useful?

Best wishes,
