Good advice, but I'd like to make a solid effort to figure out what's wrong before blotting out the evidence with a reinstall. Without knowing what caused it, I could be back in this situation at any...

Yes and yes.

If I mount the volume from the Finder via "Connect to Server" and then run SuperDuper and have it execute the backup script then it will perform the backup normally with one...

I had a 580MB disk image handy, so I used that as the source and used SuperDuper to make a backup sparse image on my server. The original disk image had 60MB of free space.

Neither do I. That's why I'm asking. Running Mac OS X 10.4.9 and SD 2.1.4.

Yes it is. It definitely is. You made me just paranoid enough that I edited the script to add some beeps to it. It's running.
