preserve_atime doesn't anyway do a lot of the things you'd think it could do, it just avoids comparing atime and I guess the code would fail if the variable would be set to true.

I don't think that a handling of atime will come any time soon, but feel free to re-create an issue at https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/issues if you have a use case and it's important to you.

There appears to be no way to turn on preserve_atime other than editing Globals.py
