Follow-up Comment #1, bug #16526 (project rdiff-backup):

If we look at how rdiff-backup wants to restore files, eg,
"rdiff-backup -r now host.net::/remote-dir/file local-dir/file"

then I think what happened here is that rdiff-backup wanted to restore the
file ./my_rdiff_repository/path/single_file to the file called '.' -- that
is, like saying:

cp -f /backup/my_rdiff_repository/path/single_file /backup

where cp decides to delete the directory 'backup' and replace it with
single_file, renamed to 'backup. However, rdiff-backup didn't quite manage to
finish this before failing.
