BUG: Not backing up TrueCrypt files

SuperDuper isn't backing up my TrueCrypt files on OS X 10.5.8.

They range in size from 30MB to 2GB. SuperDuper is not backing them up after I modify the contents.

They aren't locked, they don't have special permissions, and I don't have a copy script accidentally excluding them.

I *think* this is happening because the first few kilobyters of a Truecrypt file are always the same regardless of the contents (holding the encryption headers), and SuperDuper checks to see if a file is modified by comparing the first few kilobytes of the 2 files. Since the headers do not change, SuperDuper is assuming the files have not changed.
