Problems with schedules randomly not working

I'm a Mac IT consultant, and I have a number of customers using SuperDuper for scheduled backups. I also use it myself at home to back up my server. On every machine I try it on, I seem to have an issue where at some point the schedules will just stop executing. The machines are set not to sleep and not to spin down the hard drives, but it doesn't seem to help. The fix, once I realize it's happened, is to delete and recreate the schedule. I've also noticed that using the Copy Now button on the Scheduled Copies window will almost certainly break it. This problem has been observed on the following versions of OS X on a number of different machines:

10.4.x Client PPC
10.4.x Client Intel
10.5.x Client
10.5.x Server

My own server is a dual 867mhz Power Mac G4 (Mirrored Drive Doors) running OS X Server 10.5.4. It's backing up both its internal boot drive to another internal drive, and a Firewire attached data drive to another Firewire drive (on the other port). I've experienced the problem with both of these backup sets.
