File Vault - one file so always takes forever?

I'm using File Vault on my home directory, and I think it's got 122GB in it. I ran SD for hours last night and it seemed stuck - from what I've read here it's because it's copying such a huge file.

My question is - does that mean every single time I change one thing inside that encrypted home directory, SD will insist on copying the whole darn thing because the sparse image is all it can see? If so, then my requirement to have File Vault (employer imposed) renders SD virtually useless to me because I know I won't wait hours and hours every week to do incremental backups.

Please tell me there's something else I can do?
