Fix for regress warning code:  rdiff-backup should warn you if you are
trying to back up a directory into itself.

Fix for restoring certain directories when not run as root.

Now when determining group permissions check supplementary groups as
well as main group.  (Bug report by Ryan Castle.)

Fixed bug which could cause crash when backing up 3 or more hard
linked files and the first gets deleted during processing.  (Thanks to
Dean Gaudet for bug report.)

Fixed user/group restoring error noticed by Fran Firman.

Checked in Robert Shaw's --chars-to-quote patch

Treated hard link permission problem on Mac OS X by applying
suggestion by David Vasilevsky

Dean Gaudet's patch fixes "--restrict /" option.

Added Robert Shaw's --exclude-fifo, --include-symbolic-links,
etc. options.
