[Box Backup] Multiple bbstored processes?

Thanks, Todd.  I see what you mean.  It doesn't look like my flailing
on the server started it, but maybe my stopping and starting the
windows client service left something hanging.  The following screen
scrapes show that nothings going on in the box log for the past 6
minutes (or does it?), so I think I can and maybe should just kill
9614.  What do you think?

Thanks again,
Pete
