The best way to debug it would be to compile the binary with debug symbols 
and optimisation disabled (CXXFLAGS="-g -O0", which may already be the 
case under Windows by default) and run it under gdb ("r 
release/bin/bbackupd/bbackupd.exe -D"), which should allow you to debug it 
when it crashes.

Cheers, Chris.
