Backup taking much longer with Snow Leopard

Since installing Snow Leopard and version 2.6.1 of SuperDuper, my backups (using Smart Update) are taking over an hour, whereas they used to take about 15 mins. Should they? Has anyone else found the same? Anything I can do about it?

We're looking into the cause for slower backups and will release an update when found....

This is just subjective, but it seems to me like SuperDuper is backing up a lot more files during my Smart Update than it used to, even when I run it a second time right after the first. It copied about half the files from my boot drive, and I'm pretty sure it didn't use to do that.

So maybe that's a clue of sorts...
