[Dirvish] Dirvish Execution Cycles

I'm running a basic installation of Dirvish to backup a number of host systems. Some of these are very large mail systems, which when a mail spool file can't be backed up due to being in use, it naturally gets an error, and reports it as such.

My problem is that Dirvish seems to finish that host and then attempt the entire backup again, and continues to retry for up to 5 times before it gives up. Maybe I'm misreading these messages or am not understanding what's going on, but that is how it appears.

If this is indeed what is happening, is there a way to change the number of times the system retries, as opposed to excluding files or directories?
