How to resolve: don't back up the /etc/mnttab file. =) 

It's a system file that keeps track of currently mounted filesystems, and as
such is subject to modification at any time. It also has the potential to
mess you up badly if you ever restore it.

While searching for this on the website, also spotted a notice that they'll
automatically exclude this file starting with FP4.

Has anyone ever seen the error message below? 
This started to appear when I run my backup verification 
script after I upgraded from NBU 3.4 to NBU 4.5. 
How can I resolve this error message?
