Drive not Bootable After User Backup

When I backup "all files" from the internal drive onto an external drive, the cloned drive is bootable. This is true whether I do a complete backup or a Smart Update.

However, if I subsequently backup "user files" using Smart Update, the previously bootable clone is no longer bootable -- that is, it does not show in the window of bootable options when I view System Preferences > Startup Disk.

The SuperDuper! window after the "user files" backup process is complete lists, as the last action, making the clone bootable.

This behavior is consistent. I'm running OS 10.5.7.

Is this normal behavior?
