I can confirm this bug.
The behaviour is like this: rdiff-backup copies files to destination, then in the end it deletes all of them. So it looks like nothing happened.

As posted in ml ( http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/rdiff-backup-users/2010-12/msg00054.html ) I have problems in restoring to remote position.

I tried to execute rdiff-backup this way:

rdiff-backup -r now local_backup_dir/some_dir remote_host::/some_dir.old

for some unspecified reason this command do not restore the backup in somedir.old, as I expected, and simply complete it's task without errors or warnings and without restoring files.

I've searched in bug reports if something was similar to this issue, but I could not find anything like this.
