The client does have a mini "server" within it, to listen to the command 
socket, so that's not "wrong". The server's unique exceptions are named 
starting with BackupStore.

Is bbackupd already running? What's the CommandSocket set to in your 
bbackupd.conf? Does the directory exist? Does the socket within it already 
exist? Can the bbackupd user write to that directory?
