Another glitch

Ok, I started rdiff-backup around 1:40 am this morning and when I 
checked on it around 10:00 am the HD on the source box was going crazy 
(making all kinds of activity noise) and the gnome terminal I ran 
rdiff-backup from was still waiting for it to complete. There's less 
than 1.5 gig of data on the source and I know it shouldn't take that 
long to backup.

Where can I go (on the source or destination box) to begin to track down 
the trouble? I looked in /'dest-backup-dir'/rdiff-backup-data at the 
files there and can figure out the naming convention of the file, but 
how do I figure out what the data in the file means? Or is there another 
place on my box I can go to track down what went wrong?
