Thank you for testing. I would really appreciate your help in debugging 

Does the test reproducibly segfault in the same place? Could you try 
running it under GDB (with the ./t-gdb script in debug/test/bbackupd) to 
pinpoint the location of the segmentation fault? If you need help using 
gdb, please ask.

The test failure immediately before it is interesting, it reminds me of 
the problem Matt Brown reported and which we haven't fixed yet. Is there 
any way that you could give me remote access by SSH to a system where this 
test fails, for debugging?

Cheers, Chris.
