Sorry about the delay in getting back to you on this.
I'm trying to replicate this but without success. If I create
an empty "-i" file in a directory that has other files, then
both full and incremental backups work on my set up.
Let's take this off list and figure out how I can replicate it.
At a minimum, can you restrict the backup to just /etc and
increase XferLogLevel to, say, 6 and send me the XferLOG file?
