"Eject after copy" not working properly; errors in OS X logs

Thanks for a great product! I've been using SuperDuper! for a couple of years now and am very happy with it.

I recently updated to v. 2.6, then to v. 2.6.1, in preparation for switching to Snow Leopard. I am still running OS X 10.5.8, however.

Two issues, which may be related (with Time Machine turned off, BTW):

1. The "Eject after copy" feature doesn't seem to be working for me. Instead, it acts as "Unmount after copy", or maybe it isn't doing anything at all other than what earlier versions of SuperDuper! do.
I have a SuperDuper! scheduled copy to a volume on an external (USB2) drive. I like to keep the drive "spun down" at all times except when SuperDuper! is making its copies, so I generally "eject" the drive in the finder, which causes the drive to spin down. When SuperDuper! makes its scheduled backup, it then "mounts" the drive, does the backup, and (apparently) "dismounts" the drive -- which does NOT spin it down. (The SuperDuper! log says that it scheduled the eject, so presumably that option is set up properly.) This is the same behavior I saw before the "Eject after copy" feature was introduced.

2. The following errors are reported by Console.app (when "All Logs" are selected) when a backup job is started per its schedule at 6:30:00 AM:

9/5/09 6:30:00 AM com.apple.launchd[1] (0x10db70.cron[60799]) Could not setup Mach task special port 9: (os/kern) no access
9/5/09 6:30:00 AM com.apple.launchd[1] (0x10db70.cron[60799]) Could not setup Mach task special port 9: (os/kern) no access

9/5/09 6:30:29 AM KernelEventAgent[44] tid 00000000 received unknown event (256)

There are no log entries from when the copy finished, at about 6:42 AM.

(Please note that the Console logs often show duplicate copies of one event, so I'm not sure if the errors actually occurred as many times it would seem.)
