I've just got the above error when trying to run rdiff-backup in the way I always do. The directory it complains about is <backup directory>/home/<user>/.mozilla/firefox/i6ky0u8u.default/startupCache/ which is indeed not empty. The directory /home/<user>/.mozilla/firefox/i6ky0u8u.default/startupCache doesn't exist on the volume being backed up. I don't know what it is or was, but it probably got wiped out by the latest firefox upgrade.

Rdiff-backup normally copes just fine with deleted directories. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be and what I should do about it?
Will --force just make things worse?
