Hi all,

I'm (still) facing this problem that rdiff-backup (CVS head revision built under
ubuntu 6.06.1) regularly saturates the hdd on which /var/tmp is located.

I can't really manage this myself, would anyone uderstand what happens, and how
to make it work again?

error message :
When the error below occurred, rdiff-backup was handling approx 36 Gigs of data
(a very small part of it changes between two backups, less that Gig), before
rdiff-started, there was 22 Gigs of free space in /dev/hda6 where /var/tmp is
located, and when the crash occurred, 100% had been consumed...

I'm clueless
