I upgrade to python26 by following the 20090608 entry                                                                                      
in /usr/ports/UPDATING.

I'm now on : python26-2.6.4, rdiff-backup-1.2.8,1

But I still have the same error :
OverflowError: signed integer is greater than maximum

I just did :
# rdiff-backup /mnt/users/toto /backup/Lipn/users_backup/toto

It work for 393 user folder and give this error on 3.

I attach here the Traceback.
