Verify does not verify?

I ran an experiment (what and why is not important here) where I copied a backup set, and got an error.



+ Executing copy_set at 3/13/13 (Activity Thread 2)

To Backup Set atrash...

!Generated MD5 digest for file "/Volumes/backup/d.root.130212.gz" does not match stored MD5 digest.

I then ran a verify on the source set, and the verify came through clean.


I then turned on "verify entire media set" on a verify script, and it came through clean.


I then ran the copy again, to see if the MD5 error was a transient of some kind. Nope.


What does "verify" do, if not check things like the MD5 digests?


What does "verify entire media set" do?


I'm not sure, but I think there is a bug in here somewhere.
