Thanks, Martin.

I ran a simple batch file test of a few basic client functions on my
WinXP client and all seemed to work well, except for the minor
time-zone bug where boxbackup reports files are 5 hours later.

I modified the wiki to reflect your comments on being root--thanks!

Thanks to you and others for cleaning up that wiki page.

I'm running the tests as a normal user now.  If I see anything
different, I'll report it. 

Now, I'd like to run some serious tests on the WinXP client.  A few of
the tests under ~/boxbackup-0.09_plus3/test look like they might be
appropriate.  Any guidance on how to start going about such an
adventure would be much appreciated!  I presume I could use cygwin
under WinXP for this?
