As reported earlier, rdiff-backup may fail when making large snapshots
or diffs.  The reason was that python's version of gzip couldn't
create files more than 2GB or 4GB (I think there were two separate
issues) long.

Well I've heard from the python people that this problem was
supposedly fixed in version 2.3a1, but I haven't tried it myself yet.


for more information.
