I have the same problem now since 4 weeks. rdiff-backup is used for many
years on a Debian server to backup a Windows file server over various CIFS

After I moved the virtual machine of my Windows server from VMware Server to
VMware ESXi all files were always treated as changed on every backup. I can
reproduce this also with a clean backup repository. This only happens if the
backup source is a CIFS mount.

I tried various rdiff-backup flags (--no-compare-indoe, --no-acl, --no-eas)
and various mount options (iocharset and so on) with no success. The backup
needs now ~ 20 hours instead of 3-5 hours before...

@Attila Strba: How did you solve this problem?
