I opened the report, it affects me too. I tried backintime on precise (1.0.8 or so) and now with the ppa I am using the latest (1.032) version of backintime.

The bug is within backintime: it opens a symbolic link like if it was a normal folder (with the help of nautilus) without warning the user. Dejadup does a better job and dereferences right away in the beginning while picking which folder to backup. But then, dejadup does not backup symlinks in a subfolder. Is this done with backintime and the "copy links" option?
