[rdiff-backup-users] Fatal Error: Bad directory

First off, this is all done on Ubuntu server 12.04.

I run two backups from one machine (to keep backups/restores neat) and only one 
of them gives the Bad directory / "It doesn't appear to be an rdiff-backup 
destination dir" error. The backups are going from a VM to a hdd on the host 
server via a network/ssh connection, which works just fine. Using -l remotely 
and locally (on the host server) works the same, error with one and a listing 
with the other. Both backups place files just fine and the one with problems 
creates multiple files with correct time-stamps. As stated above, the second 
backup can restore and list it's backups perfectly which is what is really 
confusing me. The backup scripts are also identical except for the globbing 
file list.

The only errors that show up in my log are the "Unable to import win32security 
module. Windows ACLs not supported by filesystem at <some directories>" ones. I 
have been assuming that since both servers are Ubuntu and that the one backup 
works fine that these can be ignored.
