I know this isn't a "real solution" per se, but if you're in a current
situation that you need a quick solution to...there is the possibility
of doing something like this (at the shell prompt on the BackupPC
cd /var/lib/backuppc/pc (or wherever you keep your backups)
find -name '*somename*' -print
You may also want to play with '-mindepth', '-maxdepth', '-prune',
and '-iname'...but in general I'm just saying you can use the search
utilities of the underlying OS as a workaround.
