NcFTPPut does the same thing on my system and does not cause a problem,
going to ProFTPD 1.3 on a Linux server. You need to make sure the backup
user has read/execute permissions on the '/' directory, or set backup as
the home directory of the user backup and change the command line

The issue is with the NcFTP tools, not duplicity itself.  If you set up
as described above, you should not have any problems with either.
