Sorry for the late reply.

I'm a bit mystified as to how this can happen, given that we apparently 
succeeded in opening the same file earlier in the bbstoreaccounts check 
process, and it didn't throw an exception at that time.

Would it be possible for you to download and compile the latest trunk 
version of Box Backup from subversion, which contains some additional 
debugging code, and send me the output that this bbstoreaccounts gives, to 
help me understand what could be going on here?

You'd need to do a release build, i.e. run "./configure" and "make" in the 
top-level directory, but you don't have to install it. Just run 
bin/bbstoreaccounts/bbstoreaccounts with the same options that you 
previously used to check the account.

Cheers, Chris.
