I am still awaiting an answer on this question.

After some thinking, I cannot accept this as a review. IMHO a reviewer
needs to understand the patch in every detail. If (s)he sees a problem,
(s)he tells the developer, why his patch does not work. Just applying
the patch and complaining "Your patch doesn't work, here is the log,
please fix!" is not an acceptable review.
In spite of this, I tried to repeat the failure, but failed.
On Linux and Windows, I
- branched a fresh tree from mysql-6.0-backup,
- applied the patch,
- built, and
- tested the backup_backupdir* test cases.
For Windows, I had to apply some Windows specific fixes (I'm sorry that
I didn't test on Windows before), but otherwise all tests passed. So
there is no general, obvious bug in the patch. Please investigate and
tell me what's wrong with my patch.
