With https://github.com/rear/rear/pull/927
this issue should be fixed.

Initially I thought it is only a typo
but actually it was more complicated
because of prep/default/02_translate_url.sh

I would very much appreciate it if I could get feedback
whether or not it now also works for you or
if I may have even introduced new issues.

In general regarding how to test the currently
newest rear GitHub master code:

# git clone https://github.com/rear/rear.git
# cd rear
# vi etc/rear/local.conf
# usr/sbin/rear -d -D mkbackup

@jsmeix In which version of rear it is fixed?

tcerna commented at 2016-07-18 11:25:

Sorry for spam, I found it in issue 927.
Fixed in Rear v1.19.

Strictly speaking "will be fixed in the upcoming version 1.19"
(provided you provide feedback that my https://github.com/rear/rear/pull/927
also makes it work for you).
