Please could you try this new release candidate:


and let me know if it helps? It seems to in my tests.

If the "ls" command works OK for you, and if you have time, please could 
you test the other bbackupquery commands as thoroughly as you can, on 
directories with special characters in their names?

I'm particularly interested in the results for cd'ing through multiple 
directories, restoring and comparing, as I don't have good test cases for 
these, and I suspect that I haven't fixed all the problems yet.

Cheers, Chris.
