Further testing has determined that the rsync command is working as
advertised. backuppc uses a Perl implementation of File::RsyncP that
communicates with rsync. The Ubuntu port for ARM processors appears to
label a significant number of blocks as changed even through the source
and target files are identical. The problem has been reported to Craig
Barratt and the ubuntu-devel-discuss mailing list.
