Weird.  I guess the info comes from the mounted system and there is a
problem with pts.  I assume that it would look fine unmounted.

I don't back up that directory.  I use --one-file-system.  However, the
directory itself is part of root.

Side issue, I have never been able to get --exclude to work.  It
ignores my specification no matter what I try.
