Why do you think that this is a problem?
Of course, your backup process may read a partial transaction record --
it will be dropped automatically when the storage file is opened.
Of course, your backup process may not have backed up the state
at the end of the backup -- but it will have backed up the state at
the start of the backup.
Thus, all you can have as a problem: the effective backup may
not exceed the state at it was when the backup started.
I think, this should be good enough.
