[rdiff-backup-users] backing up dated snapshots

I have an application that generates its own dated snapshot files named  

Each pair of files have very few differences between them.

I had hoped to march through the dated files and for each,

ln -s ssName-YYYYMMDDHHmm.ext /src/ssName.ext
rdiff-backup /src  /targ

This apparently backs up only the symbolic link itself.

I had hoped to avoid:

cp -p ssName-YYYYMMDDHHmm.ext /src/ssName.ext
rdiff-backup /src  /targ

Can anyone suggest a way to force or fake out rdiff-backup to follow the 
symbolic link?

Thanks, Steve
