I slightly disagree: a warning (but not an error, nor an attempt to create
anything) is fine with me since if backupdir is an external drive and is not
mounted, you know the warning isn't important.

OTOH, if you just did a spelling mistake, you're probably glad to be able to fix
it immediately rather than have a error later.
