Well, in order to rule out some customization that might have caused
this, I revered to the default backup scheme and ran the test again.

No I didn't

In the two test I did (one again a few minutes ago), I let it create 3
volumes.

Here it is :

The following is a capture of the 'ps aux' output that shows the
duplicity options being used when executed the first time :

> caribou 3127 0.0 0.1 159960 4048 ? Sl 08:52 0:00 /usr/lib/deja-dup/deja-dup/deja-dup-monitor

Now this is the capture of the 'ps aux' output when deja-dup is used the
second time, after having it interrupted using the "restart later" option :

> caribou 3127 0.0 0.1 159960 4048 ? Sl 08:52 0:00 /usr/lib/deja-dup/deja-dup/deja-dup-monitor

DNs 14:37 0:20 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/duplicity --exclude=/media/workdisk/backup/deja-test --exclude=/home/caribou/Téléchargements --exclude=/home/caribou/.local/share/Trash --exclude=/home/caribou/.xsession-errors --exclude=/home/caribou/.thumbnails --exclude=/home/caribou/.gvfs --exclude=/home/caribou/.adobe/Flash_Player/AssetCache --exclude=/home/caribou/.cache/deja-dup --exclude=/home/caribou/.cache --include=/home/caribou --exclude=/sys --exclude=/proc --exclude=/tmp --exclude=** --gio --volsize=50 / file:///media/workdisk/backup/deja-test --no-encryption --verbosity=9 --gpg-options=--no-use-agent --archive-dir=/home/caribou/.cache/deja-dup --log-fd=14

If you look at it closely, it uses the --no-encryption which was not the
case on the first pass.

Now I also ran a test using the "Remember password" option. This is the
'ps aux' output on the first run :

> caribou 3127 0.0 0.1 159960 4056 ? Sl 08:52 0:00 /usr/lib/deja-dup/deja-dup/deja-dup-monitor
> caribou 7190 0.2 0.9 682172 35216 ? Sl 14:23 0:03 gnome-control-center deja-dup
> caribou 8817 81.4 0.4 404764 18304 ? RNLl 14:43 1:58 deja-dup --backup
> caribou 9052 53.0 0.4 108016 16520 ? RNs 14:46 0:11 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/duplicity full --exclude=/media/workdisk/backup/deja-test --exclude=/home/caribou/Téléchargements --exclude=/home/caribou/.local/share/Trash --exclude=/home/caribou/.xsession-errors --exclude=/home/caribou/.thumbnails --exclude=/home/caribou/.gvfs --exclude=/home/caribou/.adobe/Flash_Player/AssetCache --exclude=/home/caribou/.cache/deja-dup --exclude=/home/caribou/.cache --include=/home/caribou --exclude=/sys --exclude=/proc --exclude=/tmp --exclude=** --gio --volsize=50 / file:///media/workdisk/backup/deja-test --verbosity=9 --gpg-options=--no-use-agent --archive-dir=/home/caribou/.cache/deja-dup --log-fd=13

Then this is after I ask deja-dup to restart after having interrupted
the backup. Behaviour is the same, I still get tgz output

> caribou 3127 0.0 0.1 159960 4056 ? Sl 08:52 0:00 /usr/lib/deja-dup/deja-dup/deja-dup-monitor

I don't seem to have any problem to reproduce the issue. If time
permits, I'll see if I can have it reproduced on a VM.

Kind regards,
