rdiff-backup crash

Andrew Engelbrecht
Hello, I'm getting a crash when running rdiff-backup on some large
servers over ssh. However it appears to be an error with rdiff-backup.
I'm not sure whether the backup is corrupt.

Index: ('long_filename_data', '1.2015-08-21T03:00:00-04:00.diff.gz')
Data: {'uid': 1097, 'perms': 384, 'type': 'reg', 'gname': None, 'ctime':
1441223271, 'devloc': 64515L, 'uname': None, 'nlink': 1, 'gid': 1097,
'mtime': 923997059, 'atime': 1443562818, 'inode': 267916779, 'size':
62}' raised of class '<type 'exceptions.AssertionError'>':
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rdiff_backup/robust.py", line
32, in check_common_error
    try: return function(*args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rdiff_backup/increment.py",
line 43, in Increment
    incrp = makediff(new, mirror, incpref)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rdiff_backup/increment.py",
line 79, in makediff
    if compress: diff = get_inc(incpref, "diff.gz")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rdiff_backup/increment.py",
line 123, in get_inc
    assert not incrp.lstat(), incrp

It seems like rdiff-backup is failing because it sees that the file
exists, and for some reason expects that it shouldn't.

The file in question, once unzipped, contains the following text:

00000000  72 73 02 36 46 00 fa 00  00                       |rs.6F....|

Any ideas about what is going wrong? Thanks!
