All the files I was expecting to be backed up are in the backup.

No warnings or errors.

Both the USB hard drive and the file system I'm backing up are
formatted with the ext2 file system.
In my original setup the USB drive was exported via NFS. I mounted the
NFS share from the system being backed up and my backup worked. I'd
prefer not to use NFS so I configured faubackup to use ssh instead.
This worked but with the directory ownership problem I described.
I installed faubackup using Debian apt-get. I don't think the current
Debian package for faubackup is the latest version. Could this be the
problem ? The Debian package is version 0.5pre1-2. I've just installed
the latest version. Perhaps this will solve the problem ?
