Hi Chris,

that sounds really good. I get an compilation error:

Guards.h: In constructor 'FileHandleGuard<flags,
mode>::FileHandleGuard(const char*)': Guards.h:37: error: 'errno' was
mode>not declared in this scope
make[2]: *** [../../release/lib/common/IOStream.o] Fehler 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [dep_modules] Fehler 2 make[1]: Leaving directory
make: ***
[parcels/boxbackup-chris_merge_1436-backup-client-linux-gnu.tgz] Fehler

No time at the moment to search for the error, perhaps tomorrow.

Is it possible to build a patch with your changes for boxbackupp 0.10 ?
I would like to use that in production use.

Many thanks
