I have installed duplicity-0.1.1 on a Intel-Linux-box (kernel 2.4.18,
fs ext3). I'm running

    duplicity --exclude-other-filesystems full dimitri \
        / scp://root@dimitri.ehrenb//bkup/dimitri/duplicity/root

There are two problems:

1. Against the doc I have to use two slashes in the remote path:

   else I get the error:

        ls: bkup/dimitri/duplicity/root: No such file or directory
        Traceback (most recent call last):
          File "/pkg/bin/duplicity", line 358, in ?
            if __name__ == "__main__": main()
          File "/pkg/bin/duplicity", line 346, in main
          File "/pkg/duplicity-0.1.1/lib/python2.2/site-packages/duplicity/collections.py", line 204, in set_values
          File "/pkg/duplicity-0.1.1/lib/python2.2/site-packages/duplicity/backends.py", line 166, in list
          File "/pkg/duplicity-0.1.1/lib/python2.2/site-packages/duplicity/backends.py", line 82, in popen
        duplicity.backends.BackendException: Error running 'ssh root@dimitri.ehrenb ls bkup/dimitri/duplicity/root'    

2. The command above ends up with:

        Traceback (most recent call last):
          File "/pkg/bin/duplicity", line 358, in ?
            if __name__ == "__main__": main()

Any idea?
