Hmm, I don't see why that would happen; I don't think anything has
happened with the --remove-older-than code since 0.8.0.  Perhaps
something else changed coincidentally at the same time you upgraded
(e.g. your backup set got bigger, or some other job is running at the
same time).

    On my computer removing an increment seems to take the same time
with 0.9.5 or 0.8.0:

/mnt/back # time rdiff-backup --remove-older-than 2002-04-18 .
