It is definitely on the client.

It could mean that you are backing up a mounted filesystem (in addition to 
Ben's suggestions). If you still have trouble finding it, you could try 
out my merge branch, which contains a number of bug fixes and additional 
debugging messages which are not yet in a released version. Let me know 
and I can send you a tarball of it.

Cheers, Chris.
