Here is what happened to me one time...

Evidently the OS become corrupted in a way that would
cause a reboot to fail, but the machine still ran.

When Super Duper cloned the main disk it copied the
corruption to the backup.

When I reboot the machine and it failed, I tried rebooting
from the SuperDuper clone which also failed.

I had to restore the OS from the Distribution CD and then pull
files from the backup disk.

I *think* Time Machine would allow one to *possibly* go back
far enough to escape the corruption.
