tklbam-backup failed - maybe due to Exim?

webops's picture

tklbam-backup failed last night.  From the trace below, I assume this means mail either came in or out while my backup was running.  Do I need to exclude the /var/spool/exim4 directory?  I re-ran the backup by hand and it completed successfully.
