Did you ever find the device file?  (You can see which file
rdiff-backup objects to by setting to a high verbosity, like 7.)  If
there really are no device files then there must be some logic error
in rdiff-backup.

    Also, the newest version has an --ignore-device-files option, so
if it is messing up device files, you can just tell it to ignore all
of them.
