Hi Pete,

> Failed to open T:\ error 5.

Error 5 is Access Denied, error 123 is Invalid Name. I've added better 
error messages for these cases in Subversion, next build should have them.

> POSSIBLE BUG:  When stopping the service, we sometimes get "the
> instruction at...referenced memory at... The memory could not be read."

Please give me the address values from the error message when this 
happens. Box always stops cleanly for me.

If you see this, please report any details that you can, and I'll try to 
debug it.

SSL sessions don't crash when diffing large files :-)

OK, will investigate when I have a chance.

>            	ExcludeDir = T:\windows\Temp\
>            	ExcludeDir = T:\Temp\
>            	ExcludeDir = T:\windows\system32\LogFiles\
>            	ExcludeDir = T:\Documents and Settings\Default
> User.WINNT\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\

These will not work, trailing backslashes will mean that they never match.

> BUG:  Directories show up with 1969 Dec 31, 19:00:00 dates under 
> bbackupquery list.

I think Box Backup always does this?

> BUG: Last and least, event log shows this version as 777M.

Sorry, I obviously forgot to do a clean rebuild :-(

Thanks for testing!

Cheers, Chris.
