ok, at UBUNTU e.g. the USB Disk was mounted automatically to
/media/<somewhat>  if you put it in.

I think it can be to every time, that somebody was loocking into the 
disk / nfs share or whatever, to see, what ReaR was doing....
or to do a "tail -f" at the backup.txt???  to see the excludelists are ok.

I think, under such conditions, never a rm -rf should run. This is an 
absolute nogo.

Is this only an behavior of the ctrl-C Abort or can it be possible under 
normal End of Rear conditions , if the media was busy?
