#18: bbackupd never deleting unused store root folder entries.

 Keywords:  folder,unused,delete  |  
 A problem with bbackupd (both Win32 and UN*X): bbackupd will detect unused
 store root folder entries during a sync run, but will attempt to wait up
 to 2 days, before marking those for deletion during one of the subsequent
 sync cycles. The deadline and deletion information is lost across bbackupd
 runs, effectively never deleting redundant store root folder entries,
 unless you keep your bbackupd running for at least 48 hours (rarely
 happens in the laptop/workstation scenario).
