This functionnality can work with or without accurate backup, (there is
no difference between them in catalog). If original backups are in accurate 
mode, deleted files will be take in account.

The vbackup startime will be set to the last backup found in catalog.

In the second case, bacula will display an error during full/incr or diff 
backup. The vbackup doesn't use the fileset content to work.

vbackup of accurate backups should work quite well.
