Greetings Linda-

I had not seen this message until this evening, and we too are running Ubuntu 
Lucid (10.04.1) with all updates.

Which that memory count is after the backup just completed. Usually this server

Where did you get a newer set of xfs tools than what comes from the Ubuntu repo?

I show the following versions: $ dpkg -l|grep xfs
ii  xfsdump                                   3.0.4                             
Administrative utilities for the XFS filesys
ii  xfsprogs                                  3.1.0ubuntu1                      
Utilities for managing the XFS filesystem

Sincerely,
