No issues with my rdiff-backup (chimaera) here: I just moved it to
another location yesterday (a newly formatted ext4 partition on a SATA
drive; the backup script was run before and after the move) and created
a second backup on an also newly ext4-formatted LUKS-Partition on a USB
attached external disk.

Did your backup drive really go (permanently?) 'read only', or have you
been able to write to it by other means?
