Snapback2: –link-dest arg does not exist: ../hourly.1

I added a new host to snapback a while ago and started getting these horrible messages mailed to me by cron every six hours.  The entire body of the email was:

linkdest arg does not exist: ../hourly.1

I finally fixed it today.

The problem?  Snapback was backing up an empty directory.  One solution would be to remove the directory from snapback.  I chose to instead create an empty file ($ touch empty) in the directory because I don’t want to have to come back and re-set up snapback for that directory if it ever gets populated.

I’ll see if its fixed in four more hours.
