Based on my limited testing, 2.0.0-2 works fine with local directories.
As far as i can tell it works at least as well as version 1.2.8-6.
2.0.0-2 does exhibit the same behavior for network shares. I
discovered, however, that there is a "native" windows version of
(https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/releases/tag/v2.0.0), so I
downloaded, installed, tried it. It also exhibits the same behavior for
network shares, so the issue is clearly not introduced by the cygwin port.
I created an issue upstream
Thanks to everyone for your assistance.
