Short answer: No.

Long answer: I also stumbled upon this behaviour, We have logical
volumes for every vault and similar issues. We also tried once to have a
"current" directory --bind mounted to the last image's tree in a vault.
If someone / something now created a file or directory summary in the
backed up filesystem, dirvish-expire loses.

I would like to vote to change this algorithm to something more robust.
