account File-Vaulted, Time-Machine had to back up the account's sparse file all at once. But
if you turned time-vault off, upgraded to Leopard, and then turned Time-Vault back on, the
new sparse file was backed up in blocks. So maybe you have to create the Sheepshaver
volume in Leopard and not use the one in the distribution. I guess someone will just have to
play with it and see. I'll let you know if I get around to it before anyone else.
