I also have this issue running rdiff-backup on a webhost (bluehost) where 
/home is a weird filesystem that I have no permissions for, but I can 
access /home/myuser just fine. I wanted to back up some parts of my home 
directory using rdiff-backup, but I currently cannot because of this.

I would be very happy to see this fixed.

Cheers, Chris.
