You could always "rdiff-backup --list-increments <yourfile>". Since
rdiff-backup doesn't create an increment for files that haven't changed,
this gives you the whole history of the file. You won't have the exact
"old" date that way, but you'll see when the file was changed.

Of course, the history will only be as granular as your backup frequency.

Hope that helps,
