Thank you for the heads-up.  Can someone advise me here?  I am not
familiar with OS X and did not write the OS X code for the most part.

As I understand it, HPS allows access to the resource fork of file
"foobar" through reads/writes to "foobar/rsrc".  And this is how
rdiff-backup detects, reads, and writes resource forks.  If this no
longer works because of a change to Darwin/OS X then this part of
rdiff-backup obviously needs to be rewritten.

So anyone know how to fix this?  Anyone actually want to fix it? :)
