OK, it's good that we've established a possible cause.

Great, thanks! The problem is just on the server, so you just need to run 
the latest software there. And also you don't have to replace your 
installed Box Backup bbstored. You can build a release version (NOT debug, 
because that uses a different store format that isn't compatible) and use
the built copy of bbstoreaccounts to check the store, without installing

OK, that one is a bit old, it's possible that the problem has already been 
fixed. Running the latest code will tell us whether it has been fixed, or 
help us to debug the problem if not.

To build the release version, just check out the latest code, make and 
then run bbstoreaccounts:

 	cd trunk
 	release/bin/bbstoreaccounts/bbstoreaccounts check <account-no>

Cheers, Chris.
