OK, so the date on the file hasn't changed according to dirvish-locate.  Maybe 
the time, or something else.

Please supply the output of:

	stat /etc/apache2/ssl/nemesis41.key
	stat /backup/dirvish/n41/20060602-2304/tree/etc/apache2/ssl/nemesis41.key
	stat /backup/dirvish/n41/20060603-2304/tree/etc/apache2/ssl/nemesis41.key

The most important are the stat's of the backup as they will show what it is 
in the inode data that rsync thinks is different (barring checksums/contents 
of the file which is unlikely to have changed given the file's nature) and 
justifies creating a copy of the file.
