FWIW, I have definitely seen this problem every now and then
historically on hosts involving only *nix; I got the impression it
tended to happen for files that were both (1) large, and (2) being
changed under the feet of rdiff-backup during the backup.

I don't have specific information anymore, and I couldn't tell whether
it is true in modern versions (I haven't seen it for a while, but that
may be because I do almost exclusively backups on snapshotted file
systems nowadays).
