[rdiff-backup-users] Backup hangs

        I'm trying to use rdiff backup to backup from my work server to a hard drive on my home network (needed for audit purposes - I know it sounds crazy but there you go!).  The network is very slow however it seems that rdiff backup starts working and then eventually grinds to a halt about halfway through never making it to the end - I'm backing up about 40Gb.  Obviously once the in ital backup is done the amount of transferred data will be smaller but rdiff-backup never manages to get through to the end it always jams somewhere.  Is there a way to determine if rdiff backup is still transferring the data but very very slowly so I can work out if rdiff-backup has frozen or if it is just on a go slow?
