I would try to keep the setup as simple as possible and not use overrides for 
this one.  I see no reason for it, you've got a weekly cycle, which can be set 
by a vanilla schedule "i f i i i i s" or "1 f 1 1 1 1 s".

2.  Why do you think it's a full backup everyday, by looking at client index 
which says "full" everyday, or judging by a savesets' size?  If index says 
"full" everyday - go through all your settings, sometimes needlessly complex 
settings masquerade the error.  Maybe try to blow all yoursettings and create 
fresh.  If index says "incremental", but size is same as full - look at your 
client.  Are you by any chance backing up a readonly FS?  What kind of client 
is it?
