Please post your bbackupd.conf and give some example pathnames of

Is the timestamp on the finish file later than the start file?

What's the CPU usage of bbackupd?

Do your directories have lots of files in them? The current bbackupd  
is not terrible efficient with directories with thousands of entries.
