UDB V8 database Backups

We have noticed our on-line incremental backups are taking longer, it mabe
coincidence that we have increased our bufferpools by 10Gb.

In theory the bufferpool increase should have no affect as database backups
are 'Direct Reads' so bypass the bufferpool.

Anyone seen anything like this?
