[rdiff-backup-users] Curly braces in file names

Hello all,

I am trying to use rdiff-backup.  Client is OS X 10.7.5, using v 1.2.8.  Backup 
host is NAS4Free, accessed via AFP, with ZFS raidz2 storage.

The trouble occurs when backing up /.  rdiff-backup stops on the following 


Is there a cure for this?  I searched extensively before mailing the list, and 
saw other discussions regarding non-ASCII chars -- but didn't find one on curly 
braces (ASCII).

I'm invoking with the following-

$ sudo rdiff-backup  --preserve-numerical-ids --include-special-files \
--exclude-other-filesystems --exclude-sockets  --include-symbolic-links \
--exclude '/proc/*' --exclude '/cores/*' --exclude '/sys/*' --exclude '/tmp/*' \
--exclude '/.DocumentRevisions-V100/*' --exclude '/.Spotlight-V100/*' \
--exclude '/Users/kev/PicturesNew/*' --exclude '/Volumes/*' -v5 \
--exclude '/.Trashes/*' --exclude '/.file/*' --exclude '/.fseventsd/*' \
--exclude '/.vol/*' \
--include-regexp '[0-9a-zA-Z-_\.\(\){} \[\]]+' --exclude-regexp '[.]+' \
/ /Volumes/backups/main/ >> /tmp/rdiff7.log 2>&1 &

Also, a sanity check to ensure ZFS filenames allow '{}' did work.
