Hi all,

I couldn't find this in the bug database but maybe I just didn't know how to look. There's a 2-argument call to open in testbbackupd.cpp which wants to be 3-argument. This tripped me up compiling boxbackup for Ubuntu - I was surprised because I had not noticed that Gentoo is patching the test - and I guess the Gentoo patch didn't get reported upstream. The Gentoo patch is below, but I suspect that the new third argument ("700") is a typo for "0700".
