Bug Description

xtrabackup --help prints:
[...]
  --incremental-lsn=name
                      (for --backup): copy only .ibd pages newer than specified
                      LSN 'high:low'. ##ATTENTION##: checkpoint lsn must be
                      used. anyone can detect your mistake. be carefully!
[...]

I think the last two sentences mean to say:
"If a wrong LSN value is specified, it is impossible to diagnose this, causing the backup to be unusable. Be careful!"
