Yes, I am running it as root. I will try without
--change-source-perms. But it will take some hours to
get the answer.
And why should this option be a problem only for some
files (even not all files in the /bin directory of
this example) ? I have the impression that all files
accessed after this one are subject to the problem.
Is it not a problem with too big numbers or hashes or
How (in which order) is rdiff accessing files? As
find? Or another strategy?
But we will see.
