Hi, the development version of rdiff-backup will check to see if it
can enable EAs and ACLs by trying to import the appropriate modules.
If that doesn't work it produces the error messages you're seeing.
However, those messages should be recoverable---if it can't find the
modules it just goes on without EA/ACL support.

So it probably doesn't matter if you're seeing those messages.  If
you're rdiff-backup session is failing, it is probably failing for
another reason.
