Without this patch, rdiff-backup will also take empty sessions
(in other words: sessions without any diffs/changes) for operations
like --remove-older-than xB into account, which defeats the purpose
of limiting the number of backups in the first place. In fact, for
being asked to keep the last 20 backups, it has removed all usable backups for me as those changes were done a while back..
