I didn't follow this thread completely, but I wonder if you've given 
Lucky Backup a try. It's a GUI backup solution that's both flexible and 
powerful. I've been using it for a long time with great success. It can 
be found in the standard repositories. I'd highly recommend it, if 
you're looking for a GUI solution. Of course, I may have missed 
something in the thread that would render that tool unusable in your 
situation (if so, forgive my ignorance).
