New Revision: 1858

New client release [1857], with the following new features:

 * Add James O'Gorman's NotifySysAdmin.vbs script to client parcel on
   Windows [1838]

 * Update NotifySysAdmin.vbs to send a message to the event log if it
   fails to send an email (James O'Gorman) [1837]

 * Don't include the install-backup-client script in Windows builds, as
   it's pretty useless without Cygwin (Pete Jalajas) [1841]

 * Fix the examples in the sample configuration file [1847]

 * Make Windows Service-related command-line processing use getopt,
   like the other options [1849] [1850] [1852] [1854]

 * Report more useful error messages on connect() failure on Windows

 * Record the exit status of the daemon when running as a service, and
   return it to Windows so that Windows doesn't tell the admin that
   "the service did not report an error" when it stopped unexpectedly

 * When failing to contact the SCM, report a textual error message as
   well as the error code [1853]

 * InstallService uses the new "-s" option instead of "--service" on the
   service command line [1853]

 * Add proper usage information (-h option) in Daemon for all subclasses

 * Add usage information for service options in BackupDaemon [1855]

 * Disable useless -D, -F and -k options on Windows [1855]

 * Use the specified service name when installing and removing the
   service [1856]

 * Pass the service name on the service command line, and use it for
   event log messages [1856]

 * Improve timer debugging on Windows [1857]
