Hi Stuart,

Thanks for your reply.  But, I don't think that's the problem. With my
high-frequency test bbackupd.conf settings, even a frequently edited
file should be backed up within about half a minute (24 + ~4 + ~3
seconds), I would think.  

That high-frequency cycling is certainly working as shown by when I
delete a file, or add a new exclusion regex (see my other thread), the
files in the bbackupquery list -d output are flagged with an "X" within
a few seconds. 

Thanks again, Stuart,
Pete
