Hi all, especially Gary, Pascal and Peter,

I've released a new build for Box Backup for Win32 which, I hope, corrects 
some of the issues reported by you. I'd be grateful if you could test it, 
and verify whether these issues are now fixed:

- Unable to cd into a remote directory with international chars in the
   name (reported by Gary)
- "bbackupctl reload" caused the backup daemon to lock up (reported by
   Pascal Lalonde)
- Newly created files were not backed up for MinimumFileAge + 5 hours when
   running in a timezone 5 hours behind UTC (reported by Peter Jalajas)
- bbackupquery compare -a didn't work at all (reported by Peter Jalajas)
- Unable to force a sync during the error holdoff period after a sync was
   aborted due to an exception

You can find it at:

Please note that this is NOT a release candidate, since there are still 
outstanding bugs, particularly with SSL keepalives, and possibly backups 
of files inside folders with international characters in their names 
(reported by Gary).

However, I do believe that this is the best Win32 build yet.

Thank you all for your hard work in testing the previous builds and 
reporting problems!

Cheers, Chris.
