I don't know but I have *exactly* the same problem using SHFS (SSH file
system) backing up to a remote location. Perhaps this needs to be worked
around somehow in rdiff-backup ...

I guess UNIX file systems (NFS included) allow you to delete an object that
is still opened, while SMBFS/SHFS/... don't.
