I'm having a similar issue. My backup volume is /Volumes/Backup320 and
I'd like to restore /var/mysql/db1/ to /tempp/db1 (just as a test to
try restoring):

sudo mkdir -p /tempp/db1
sudo rdiff-backup -r 3D /Volumes/Backup320/var/mysql/rcm/ /tempp/db1

Then when it's done, I don't get any output, I'm just back at the
terminal prompt. Also the db1 directory inside /tempp/ is missing
afterward, too. Anything I'm doing wrong? Can you only backup files to
their respective mirror location (e.g. only backup /var/mysql on the
backup to /var/mysql on the main machine)?
