Whew, if Pondini hasn't covered it, I don't know what it could be!?
BTW, your pic link doesn't work, to actually include a pic you have to use the tiny Camera icon in a reply to upload it.

Strange -- I did use the little camera icon to upload the jpeg image.

Just wondering, Have you used Disk Utility to Repair Disk on that Partition, & Verify Disk on the slow MBP?

Following the directions at http://pondini.org/TM/A5.html, I tried that about a week ago. No problems found and no change in behaior.

Have you tried deleting the timemachine.plist mentioned somewhere by Pondini?

I gave it a try last night. For the record it is item A4 at the pondini.org site. The result:
- the back up was 1.43 Gb (rather large considering that the only activity on the MBP since the previous backup had been to read mail).
- no change to the list of previous back up entries and the mulitple backups from the last few days were not pruned (that is, the problem perists).
- I looked at the backups using the Time Machine interface and only the ones snce removing the .plst are visible. (All of the prior backups are still visible using the finder interface looking at the mounted virtual disk.)
