sdbackupbytime?

I believe, over the years, there has been some discussion about this, but ...

Most of my backups are automatic. In the wee hours of the morning, when I can't monitor them. But every month or so, I do a special manual backup. Today, I did one. The backup was successful, and completed, according to SuperDuper but, after that, the disk and OS was VERY busy for many minutes on what Console told me was sdbackupbytime activity.

Um. Whazzat?

Eventually, everyone is happy, and the disk activity ceases. But when a backup is formally completed, according to SuperDuper, do I have to wait for everyone to be happy? Or can I just unmount the disk while it sounds like it is working hard? After SuperDuper SAYS it is done, it's apparently not.
