I use Amanda to make nightly backups of a bunch of servers using GNU tar. 
However, gtar doesn't seem to respect its --one-file-system flag with /proc. 
Amanda runs a variation of this command:

    # /usr/local/bin/gtar --create --file - --directory / --one-file-system 
--sparse --ignore-failed-read --totals . > /dev/null
    /usr/local/bin/gtar: ./proc: file changed as we read it

Before I file a bug report, can anyone think of a legitimate reason why gtar 
would be touching /proc at all?
