Although some evidently feel that reading the how-to-go-back-to-SL solves the issue(s) with Lion, I'm determined to figure out how to rectify my situation. I'm staying with Lion.
That said, I would still like to hear any solutions anyone might have for the intermittent (frequent) Time Machine backup errors (see my original post).
And since I started this particular thread, I don't feel that the "Correct Answer" has yet been offered, at least not the correct solution for me.

Hey, finally I found a permanent fix for this issue. I read about it at another Apple Discussions Forum, but right now I don't remember where.
It worked for me at least. In my case it seems that some Western Digital (WD) software was causing the issue. I just uninstalled WDSmartWare from my iMac using that application's own uninstaller, rebooted my Mac and, finally, after months of calling Apple Support with no luck, it all started to work normally again, so check if you have some WD software running on your Mac. In my case I didn't even need that WD software, as I had it because I used to back up to a WD Drive which I don't use anymore since I bought my Time Capsule.
Feel free to reply if you require any further assistance.

Tom, that is exactly what the problem is. I run my Time Machine as a share to a Drobo FS with 2 WD 2 TB drives. I installed the s/w on my iMac but never used it, and when I started experiencing these problems, I went to Data Robotics who manufacturers the line of Drobo products. They didn't know what was causing the problem so I went to this forum and saw your write up, and you are right on. As soon as I uninstalled it and rebooted, Time Machine took off. Thanks for this insight!

Usually this type of error message mean that you do have a WD software installed in your computer. Just uninstall it and this should resolve the issue.
