Smart update of cloned drive copies ~250K files

I have a Mac Pro with several internal drives to backup my main drive. Running Snow Leopard 10.6.1 with SD 2.6.1. I cloned my main drive to a erased backup drive earlier today. I recently closed all open applications, did a Smart Update, and 230,000 files out of 650,000 files were copied. I then immediately ran Smart Update again, and basically got the same number of files copied again (to within a few hundred files). I normally have SD running in the middle of the night so I have not monitored the behavior for a while, but this is not my recollection. I think repeat runs of Smart Update would copy a few 10's of files at most. Any thoughts?
