It's a WinXP Home box so I don't think it has anything other than Administrator and Limited (plus the Guest account). Any other ideas?

I finally figured it out!!! So with Windows XP Home you don't have an easy way (that I found) to log in to the Administrator account...you have to boot into Safe Mode (F8 when booting). At this point I was able to then see the real permissions on the files and sure enough (don't know why) some folders didn't have even READ access turned on in the security tab.
As for my other thread (child exited prematurely), although I'm not sure, I did have a TON of errors on my backuppc box (fsck found lots of problems)....I corrected them and did a full back up without any errors. Wierd since it's a brand new 250 GB harddrive that I bought soley for the purpose of putting BackupPC on it and that's all it's ever had on it (aside from Linux, Apache etc of course). But as long as everything is up and running again I don't care :-)
