Bug Description

Does this indicate hardware problems?
I did run a memory check a few months ago with no problems.
Maybe it complains because I'm trying to backup a huge file +-28Gb

The new rdiff-backup 2.0 (written in Python 3) has recently been released. Please check out https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup and contribute in this open source project.

This bug is unlikely to apply to anymore to latest rdiff-backup 2.0, so it will be closed unless you want to help out and test if you can repeat the bug with the latest rdiff-backup.
