Ok, back on again.
Apparently the problem resides on the fact that despite the backuppc server asks for a machine fingerprint when connecting for the first time to the target machine when doing the ssh-rsa key exchange via scp, this is not enough. In fact, I've tried a manual dump as suggested in the backuppc troubleshooting hits, and ssh did ask once more to add the client's fingerprint to known_hosts before performing the dump. After that, everything started to work normally again.
