In skolelinux we uses slbackup which in turns uses rdiff-backup as it's

On one of the installation, I checked the logfile, and found that is
fails. The backup server is a workstation that also has the folders it
is trying to backup mounted over NFS. 
But the backup is done over ssh. 

The backup has failed for quite some time now, and I have attached the
logfile. Akkording to Morten Werner, werner at skolelinux dot no,
rdiff-backup should treat symlinks as symlinks, but something seems to
fail here: 

There is a line in the log: 
 line 351, in reval
  OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

The backup is run as root, but looking into this on the backup-machine: 
 ltsp100:~# ls -l 
 Permission denied
 ltsp100:~# ls -l 
 lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           42 Feb  9  2004 
/var/lib/slbackup/tjener/skole/tjener/home0/rahal/Desktop/Fellesdokumenter -> 

To me, it looks like rdiff-backup follows the symlink
