By what, David?  I'm running kde here.  I just made that script from a 
previous message, then did a killall on the daemon, and with that gone the 
tree if any has now been deleted.  We will wait and see what squawks.

As far as the comment about an addon, non-approved app like amanda is 
concerned, I have been running amanda since back in the day when redhat 
actually supplied bru as its backup app.  Amanda beat it then, and still beats 
anything in the fedora repos 11 years later.  Quality code generally stands 
the test of time, particularly when it has been in active development for all 
of those years, even before linux itself I believe as its an even older unix 
app.  I'm running the snapshot taken on 06/22/2009 right now.  Where is bru 
today?  I have no idea.
