A couple of times when we have tried to restore a backup in order
to verify it is usable we have come across this "problem".

Therefore I think a logging option would be very useful. Then it would
also be possible to monitor the log files for such warnings.

Maybe it could also be an option when using the "compare" command
with bbackupquery?
