Tested on 1.2.8 release and 1.3.3 development versions of the Win32 exe using
Windows XP Professional.

1) Folder attributes of "read-only" are copied correctly to the mirror, but
if this directory is then removed on the source, the next backup will crash.
This is due to the fact that rdiff-backup cannot delete the directory. If one
manually removes the read-only tag from the folder on the mirror prior to
running the backup that attempts the removal, everything works fine. The
read-only flag is even set back by rdiff-backup when restored.

2) File/Folder attributes of "hidden", "system", etc (like less-important
compress/encrypt flags) are ignored. As a result a restore operation then
requires these flags be reset manually.
