Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, the problem of backing up large files from Win32 (WinXP
SP2) bbackupd to RedHad 9.0 bbstored is back again.

Client side log:

Send ListDirectory(0xf,0xffffffff,0xc,true).
Receive Success(0xf).
Receiving stream, size 633.
Send GetBlockIndexByName(0xf,"large.530.meg.file.dat").
Receive Success(0x1b4c).
Receiving stream, size 131516.
Sending stream, size uncertain.
Send SetClientStoreMarker(0x3f424a72ee3c0).
SSL err during Write: error:1409F07F:SSL
routines:SSL3_WRITE_PENDING:bad write retry.
Exception caught (7/33), reset state and waiting to retry....
File statistics: total file size uploaded 534332416, bytes already on
server 77824, encoded size 65536.
Beginning scan of local files.

Check store account ID 0abcd567
Phase 1, check objects...
Phase 2, check directories...
Phase 3, check root...
Phase 4, fix unattached objects...
Phase 5, fix unrecovered inconsistencies...
Phase 6, regenerate store info...
Store account checked, no errors found.

Some thoughts:

1. The problem is not network related, in the sense of interrupted
connection. Perhaps some kind of timeout.
2. The problem does not depend on bbackupd.conf MaximumDiffingTime.
3. The problem is probably on the server side, since blowing away the
relevant account fixes the problem for a few backups.
4. The problem is not detected by bbstoreaccounts check.
