Thanks for the bug report. Do you have any messages in the system logs on 
the bbackupd or bbstored end when this happens? Can you reproduce it at 
will? Could you strace the bbstored master process before the client 
connects (with strace -f -s 256) and capture the trace logs somewhere so 
that we can try to see how it gets into this state?

At what time does the Windows client connect each day?

Cheers, Chris.
