Thanks for testing, and I'm sorry that it's not working for you. I guess 
you're running the tests in release mode? Please could you try to run them 
in debug mode, check that the same problem happens, and then do this:

 	cd debug/test/backupstorefix
 	(gdb) start
 	(wait for test to hang..., then press Control+C)
 	(gdb) bt

Could you provide a bit of context to that failure, like the last 10 lines 
of the log? And/or email test-backupstore.log to me privately?

Thanks, I really appreciate your help testing and debugging this.

Cheers, Chris.
