Strange behavior with FileVault

I'm regularly having problems backing up my hard drive which contains my FileVault home directory. The problems are irregular and difficult to reproduce or describe properly, and people have been convincing me I'm seeing things when I reported that the sparseimage file was copied TWICE.

But how would you explain this:

[15:46] tnuctip:/Users/jwr>l /Users/.jwr/
total 23817436
-rw------- 1 jwr jwr 24389050368 Oct 12 15:46 jwr.sparseimage
[15:46] tnuctip:/Users/jwr>l /Volumes/mac-backup\ 120GB/Users/.jwr/
total 43925376
-rw-r--r-- 1 root jwr 44979585024 Oct 12 15:46 jwr.sparseimage
[15:46] tnuctip:/Users/jwr>

The first is the source sparseimage, the second is the backup that is being updated. The second file keeps growing as the backup makes progress.

Just to make it more clear:

[15:49] tnuctip:/Users/jwr>du -sk /Users/.jwr/
23817436 /Users/.jwr/
[15:49] tnuctip:/Users/jwr>du -sk /Volumes/mac-backup\ 120GB/Users/.jwr/
45670400 /Volumes/mac-backup 120GB/Users/.jwr/
[15:49] tnuctip:/Users/jwr>

what gives?
