Update of bug #20342 (project rdiff-backup):

                  Status:                    None => Confirmed              
             Assigned to:                    None => owsla                  


Follow-up Comment #1:

Yes, this error is happening because the destination filesystem (a CIFS
share) doesn't support symbolic links. Fortunately, rdiff-backup preserves
the symlink information in the mirror_metadata file so they can be recreated
on restore.

But for on the backup server, what should rdiff-backup write in its place? A
simple marker file?
