Ah, now i got it. Thanks for your patience ;-)

it's interesting that the current backups (rsync the Data.fs directly)
never caused any problems. i guess that's due to the fact that the
Data.fs infact never changed during the backups yet.

i'll change that to backup a local copy of the Data.fs instead in
future. a simple solution would be to run 'cp Data.fs Data.fs.safe'
for every instance just before backuppc starts the rsync process.

thanks for your help,
