[rdiff-backup-users] Restore stuck

User-agent: Pan/0.14.2 (This is not a psychotic episode. It's a cleansing moment of clarity.)


I'm restoring from one RHEL4 to another, using rdiff-backup v. 1.0.4.
SELinux is turned off 

Let's call:
 - the server where the backup resides: b
 - the server I'm trying to restore to: r

The restore process is 3/4 through, but seems stuck now. Backing up is
performed from r, using
rdiff-backup --restore-as-of now address@hidden::scm /var/restore

On b, load avarage is high, and rdiff-backup has a resident set size of
356MB (rising). On r, load avarage is practically 0.

On b, when I go to /proc/<pid of rdiff-backup>/fd I see:
 0 -> a socket
 1 -> a socket
 2 -> a socket
 3 -> /home/backup/HOSTNAME/rdiff-backup-data/restore.log
 4 ->

On r, when I go to /proc/<pid of rdiff-backup/fd I see:
 0 -> a socket
 1 -> a socket
 2 -> a socket
 3 -> /var/restore/home/jiratest/mail/.imap/INBOX/rdiff-backup.tmp.146052
 4 -> a socket
 5 -> a socket

Files in the /home/jiratest/mail/.imap/INBOX are very small and shouldn't
be able to inflict any trouble.

Any ideas about how to proceed in such a situation?

(When I get more time, I might try doing it again with elevated verbosity
levels, but currently, I'll have to re-create my data in other ways.)
