Thanks all for all the quick help. The solution works great and is perfect for my needs.

Adrian is correct that the last line of the "rdiff-backup -l" is the start time of the last backup.  So you can do "rdiff-backup -l | grep -i current" to get just that time.

Note that as it is the start time, and depending on how you run your backups, e.g. in conjunction with filesystem snapshots, etc, it may or may not include some files that change after this time.

Well I just looked at:

rdiff-backup -l

and at the bottom it shows:

Current mirror: Thu Nov  7 18:30:03 2013

which in my case at least was the time of last backup.
