I booted from the backup and that worked, but some issues were immediately obvious: My desktop and dock preferences were not maintained. Instead they were the default values and the dock had only the default items in it - not the large number of applications and folders that were in my original, and not on the left side of my screen. I suspect that I could restore from this backup if necessary, but clearly some of the preferences are not being properly saved so I will hold off on my update to 10.5.1 until I know for sure that I have a backup I can trust.
Been there; done that; have mutiple t-shirts.

What I would recommend in your specific case is to downgrade to 10.4.11, and do a migration from the SD backup you now have. Once everything is back to normal, complete a new SD backup and wait for SD to be Leopard compatible. If SD is your bread and butter backup, it is as good as it gets for now. Probably not the answer you want to hear, but at least your data will be safe.
