I agree, it definitely is. We have had a few sporadic reports of this 
problem over the years, and never got to the bottom of it. In some cases 
it may have been caused by doing funny things to the store filesystem, 
such as running it on NFS or synchronising with another machine. Do you 
do anything like that? What filesystem is the store on?

It could also be caused by the server crashing and losing files from the 
filesystem due to inconsistent caches. We should really be able to fix it 
ourselves, though.

Can you see exactly when this started happening, and whether anything else 
strange happened to the server at around the same time?

Also are you willing to help us to debug it and fix it, by checking out 
the latest Box Backup source code from Subversion and compiling and 
testing it? And what version of Box Backup are you running?

Cheers, Chris.
