Looks like a timing issue. (The tests are a fine balance between  
running in a sensible time and reliably passing. Remember they're  
testing a separate daemon which does things in it's own sweet time.)  
Because of this, backupstore left the server running, which stopped  
future daemon based tests working.

Basically, it's fine. Not an ideal answer, I know. The test suite  
does need revisiting at some point.
