Sorry, my mistake, I wasn't able to verify the bug (I wrote the test and 
it works for me). Please could you provide some more information about 
exactly what's going wrong for you? For example, when you say "according 
to my log, it attempts to overwrite /root/a/dir/file", could you provide 
the exact log message? And which version of Box Backup are you using?

Cheers, Chris.
