Actually, I would have never known about the corrupted DatebookDB if I used 
only BackupMan and not both BackupMan and RescoBackup to do my backups.  
RescoBackup tests the integrity of databases before starting the backup, 
whereas BackupMan just goes ahead with the backup without scanning. And the 
problem only happens occasionally, without an apparent pattern.
