It's not in the original code, it's one of the safety features that I
added at Ben's suggestion. The problem is that if we can't delete the
cached store info, and the backup aborts or is killed without writing
another one, then the next time bbackupd starts, it will try to use the
same cached info again. bbackupd will not know that a previous backup was
half-completed, because the client store marker has not changed.
I'm told that this could have very bad consequences, although I don't know
what they are.
