[rdiff-backup-users] 0.13.6 on macosx client

I'm using 0.13.6 on a osx client and 0.13.4 on linux server.

Osx backups seem to work well, but repeated backups show a disturbing 
trend - 
The mirror metadata file seems to be a fully copy each time.
So for a backup that had almost no changes, 
ChangedFiles 2
ChangedSourceSize 2036 (1.99 KB)
ChangedMirrorSize 2064 (2.02 KB)
IncrementFiles 5
IncrementFileSize 568 (568 bytes)
TotalDestinationSizeChange 540 (540 bytes)

I still get a 20MB mirror increase, due to what appears to be a full
copy of the metadata.

-rw-------    1 root     root     20567124 May  3 13:59
-rw-------    1 root     root     20567121 May  3 14:06
-rw-------    1 root     root     20567122 May  3 14:16

Is there anyway to limit this to JUST the needed metadata changes?
I can see several machines having MOST of their backup disk space tied
up in meta snapshots.
