The change I ended up making was:

This then compiled cleanly.

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

Git Annex is great. It works with multi-gigabyte backup files via the MD5E backend just dandy :)

fixed, thanks for the patch --Joey
