[Box Backup] Some weirdness with bbackupctl

I was having some trouble with a machine running the client daemon.  It 
had been running properly, but for some reason, my nightly cron job 
(bbackupctl -q sync) quit working.  The cron log showed the job running, 
and I had deliberately uploaded some files to one of the backed-up 
directories to test, but the log on the server side showed no attempt at 
a login by the client.

I discovered that issuing the command directly wasn't working either, 
unless I issued it twice in succession.

After doing a stop/start on the client daemon, it appears to be working 
properly now.

Has anybody had a similar problem?

This was in Linux (2.4 kernel) using the 0.08PLUS2 release (for both 
bbstored and bbackupd.)

Thanks much,
