Thanks for looking at this, and giving us some updates.

Sure. Could you send the patch for accounts.cgi as an attachment,
please? As for the Perl modules, these were written by Per. In case he's
not still reading the list, it might be better to mail him directly to
ask him to fix the module in CPAN.

It's also worth pointing out here (for anyone interested) that Ben
contributed a generic web framework some time ago. It'd be good if
someone could utilise this to write an actual application server for the
web client, rather than relying on bbackupquery.
