It's probably just that rdiff-backup has gotten more CPU hungry while
I've been adding features.  How many files are there, about 500000?  I
hope 0.9.x will see some speed enhancements.

I don't think so, but when you restore you'll have to use 0.7.x if
there were any compressed diff files, as 0.6.x won't recognize them.
