Two things. Firstly, given the above entry, are you trying the following
(you should be):

        rdiff-backup --test-server

I ask only because that's an unusual name to give to a host. However, if
you are doing that and you're being prompted for a password, it could be a
permissions/ownership issue for the authorized_keys file (and all
directories on the path to it) on the remote server. The easiest way of
troubleshooting that is to edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the line
the LogLevel line to:

LogLevel DEBUG

and then restart ssh. Then try the remote supposedly-passwordless login
again, and see what is reported in your logfile (the exact file depends on
how you have logging set up, but it's probably /var/log/auth or
/var/log/secure or similar). Let us know how you get on...
