What you are missing is the manual page warning that you should never write to 
mirror directory except with rdiff-backup. Once you've corrupted the backup 
by making changes to the mirror, rdiff-backup won't function correctly for any 
files that you affected. 

Wow, guess we're going to switch back to rsync. If rdiff can't create a backup 
from live files (ie: recreate files in the backup repository that may get 
erased) it's almost worthless in our situation.

We've been using rsync to keep incremental backups on the clients systems for 
easy/quick restore. So if part of the full backup gets moved, the backup 
mechanism needs to be able to re-create that.
