An attempt to backup my desktop failed with the message:

This doesn't answer your question directly, but you can
--exclude-sockets to skip all AF_UNIX socket files.  It doesn't make
much sense to back them up anyway, IMHO.

I tried adding --exclude-sockets to the command line but it had no effect, the backup again failed with the same SpecialFileError as above.

Could it be that the SpecialFileErrors are unimportant?
I found that the rdiif-backup program exited with 0 even tough while it was running there were SpecialFileError messages and the listed statistics reported 2 errors. Based on this finding I ran the program again. There had been no files added, changed or delelted and this second run completed quickly reporting no errors
