Hmm, on my system:

~/work/rdiff-backup-0.9.2 $ rdiff-backup --version
rdiff-backup 0.9.2
~/work/rdiff-backup-0.9.2 $ ./rdiff-backup --version
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./rdiff-backup", line 20, in ?

So when you typed in "rdiff-backup", which script was run, a previous
copy you had in /usr/local/bin or somewhere?  Or do you have "." in
your PATH (as root no less!)?

    If the problem is just that the uninstalled rdiff-backup script
doesn't work, I will just make it less tempting, maybe by removing its
exec permissions and/or moving it to a different directory.

    Thanks for the tip though; I can see how those kinds of things can
be frustrating...
