Why did SD delete my folders?

Two nights ago my main directory got damaged up and couldn't be repaired, so I needed to restore from a recent clone on an external hard drive.
Before doing so, I wanted to backup all my user files that had changed since the last clone was done a few days before. I only wanted to backup the user files, because I didn't want to backup any corrupted system files.

I opened SD and set it to Smart Update using Backup - user files.

When SD had finished, I was shocked to find that SD had deleted ALL files on the destination except the Users folder. Everything else at at the root level was gone - Documents, Library, System, SystemConfiguration etc. ALL GONE!!

I had no choice at that point except to re-clone my entire drive (corrupted files and all) to the external drive. After 3 more hours, SD finished.
As a test, to see if I somehow did something wrong, I again attempted to copy just the user files to the just-cloned external HD. I again set SD to Backup - user files with the Smart Update function (which I've always used). Within seconds of starting SD, the root folders started disappearing again, so I stopped SD. I then had had to re-clone my system again, but it was much faster since only 2 folders had been deleted.

When Backing up user files, I sure wouldn't expect SD to delete everything except the user files!


WHAT HAPPENED?


When trying to clone my drive today, SD keeps hanging and I must Force Quit.
I had just reformatted and partitioned my external drive, and SD hangs around 75%. When I restart SD, it hangs again at the same place - doesn't make any progress.

Console shows this:

I just ran Applejack, and now I'm running SD again. SD started to continue the backup, but now it's stuck again. No SBB, but the Log shows nothing has been copied in over 15 minutes.
Perhaps those corrupted files I was forced to copy are causing problems?


SD 2.6.4
OS X 10.6.8 Intel 64-bit
