Ouch, I tried briefly to duplicate these errors with the current
version (0.9.1) and couldn't.  Could you tell me if you get the
problem on all directories or just some, and whether or not the
problem shows up locally, or only remotely?

    rdiff-backup will try to delete the destination directory when
(and hopefully only when) you use the --force switch and it thinks
that the destination path exists, but is not a directory.  I don't
know why it would have thought that in your case, when it obviously
was a directory, but there were some errors in the C statting code,
and I guess C type errors can lead in theory to any behavior

    So anyway if you can recreate the error with 0.9.1, let me know
how.  Thanks.
