Yes, I was running the release version of the tests.

For backupstorefix:
Running it in debug (and doing a "c" since it immediately hits a
breakpoint when you run it), I see:

NOTICE: Running test backupstorefix in debug mode...
Entry 5: Old flag unset
Entry 3: Set old flag
Entry 2: Remove because ID already seen
Entry 5: Old flag unset
Entry a: File flag set when dir flag set
Entry a: Old flag unset
Entry 2: Set old flag
Entry id 4, correcting DependsOlder to 3, was 8627
Entry id 2 was marked that 1 depended on it, which doesn't exist,
dependency info cleared
Entry id 2 removed because depends on newer version 3 which doesn't exist
Entry id 4 was marked that 3 depended on it, which doesn't exist,
dependency info cleared

Then, nothing.

The backtrace on CTRL-C looks like:

#0  0xb7fe3410 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#1  0xb7b7b373 in waitpid () from /lib/libc.so.6
#2  0xb7b24289 in ?? () from /lib/libc.so.6

#5  0x080536fe in main (argc=1, argv=0xbf8d2ec4) at _main.cpp:315

I'm using Linux 2.6.23, on x86.

For the 'backupstore' test:
I've emailed you the log for that (in debug mode) - let me know if I can
do any more (I'm comfortable with C/C++ and debugging).

When 0.11 stabilises I'll get an updated Gentoo package submitted.
