Timeshift bug : Phantom recursive subvols in BTRFS

Hello, I've noticed an annoying bug with TImeshift, if on a "standard BTRFS Mint install".

Re: SD Card Reader won't work.

It's worth noting that the 3.5 kernel that comes with Ubuntu 12.10 and Mint 14 Nadia solves all problems this card reader had in previous versions. Alas LMDE still uses a much older 3.2 Debian kernel...

Re: SD Card Reader won't work.
