[Box Backup] Error messages at execution

First of all, I didn't succeed in running bbstored on an OpenBSD 3.3
box. I keep getting an 'Exception: RaidFile (2/8)' when trying to create
an account.

So I decided to try on a 3.4 box, although I'm not root on this one. So
I modified all the paths in the .h files from /etc/box to
/home/plalonde/etc/box. I compiled everything, and the installation went
all fine. But when I execute bbstored, I get: 'bbstored: exception Common

My setups are all with RAID disabled, since I don't have many hard discs
to do my tests.

The thing is, the exception messages are not quite "revealing" ;-)
I tried to gdb bbstored, but I couldn't get it to match the executable
with the source files. So I'm quite stuck.

And I generated my certificates by hand, like this:
openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout domain.com-key.pem -keyform
PEM -out domain.com-csr.pem -outform PEM

and I signed it with my already-existing test CA key:

openssl ca -in domain.com-csr.pem

and copied the resulting certificate as clientCA.pem

How do you usually debug boxbackup? And, do you know what these
exceptions mean?

Here is my raidfile.conf:
	SetNumber = 0
	BlockSize = 2048
	Dir0 = /home/plalonde/bbackup
	Dir1 = /home/plalonde/bbackup
	Dir2 = /home/plalonde/bbackup

And my bbstored.conf:
RaidFileConf = /home/plalonde/etc/box/raidfile.conf
AccountDatabase = /home/plalonde/etc/box/bbstored/accounts.txt

TimeBetweenHousekeeping = 900

	PidFile = /var/run/bbstored.pid
	User = plalonde
	ListenAddresses = inet:domain.com
	CertificateFile = /home/plalonde/etc/box/bbstored/domain.com-cert.pem
	PrivateKeyFile = /home/plalonde/etc/box/bbstored/domain.com-key.pem
	TrustedCAsFile = /home/plalonde/etc/box/bbstored/clientCA.pem

Output of 'bbstoreaccounts info 1':

I know I don't have what could be called "standard setups"...
