That is indeed how it should work.

Please send in the complete rcfile entry for the site, run:

  sitecopy --debug=files --logfile=/tmp/debug.log yoursite

preferably in a state where only a single file is modified, and then 
send in the /tmp/debug.log file to the list.  (Note that this will 
reveal a list of all the files in your site to the public - mail it to 
me privately if that's an issue)

Regards, Joe
