Hi Thomas,

I know this is kind of grasping at straws but ...

I use rdiff-backup fairly often and have not had this problem.  However,
I recently got a few errors on an 'rsync' run.  The errors occurred on
only four or five seemingly unrelated files and, while I no longer have
the exact error message, I do recall that they were quite misleading.
After several hours of "poking around" it turned out my backup hard
drive was failing.  So, as I said, it's a shot in the dark but ... have
you checked your drive?  I didn't find my problem until I ran 'e2fsck'
with '-c' (non-destrutive bad block check).  Running 'e2fsck
-f ...' (i.e. without '-c') said everything was fine.
