unexpected EOF while looking for matching `''

Got this error while trying to perform my first backup since upgrading to Tiger. I've attached the log file, and my system profile.

I don't know if you can tell from my system profile, but both source and destination drives are formatted with case-sensitive hfs+

OK. We've had two other reports of this problem and we're trying to figure out what it is. I can say, for certain, that formatting for case-sensitive HFS+ is probably a mistake: we've been informed that it's not supported as a boot format, and should only be used for very specific situations. Are you sure you want to do this?

Regarding the error: something unusual isn't getting escaped, or something. Are you registered? (I only ask because one other user was not, and I want to see if that's a common factor -- not because you have to register to use the program the way you are, or get support.)

Yeah, the default case-insensitive filesystem has long been a headache when porting software that comes from a case-sensitive filesystem. I haven't had any problems thus far (other than this).

And yes, I am registered. Is there a way I can find out what script it is trying to run? Then maybe I could find out why it's barfing there.

Do me a favor and contact me through support. We'll put together a private build that'll help diagnose the issue.

I am running in to the unexpected EOF while looking for matching `'' problem that dmw reports in the forums.

I installed the latest version of Super Duper and am a registered user.

The first backup of Tiger from case-sensitive, journalled disk to external firewire case-sensitive, journalled disk reported the "Could not ignore permissions" error. I ran the line of terminal code and restarted.

I am emailing Support with my Super Duper log file and System Profiler.

Hi, Blake:

The problem, in this case, is that the current version of SuperDuper! can't be *run* from a Case Sensitive volume. (We can copy one, though.)

To resolve the problem -- temporarily -- create a disk image with Disk Utility and run SuperDuper! from the image (which shouldn't be case sensitive).

We'll have this bug fixed in v2.0 of SuperDuper! In the meantime, sorry for the difficulties.

(The second issue is covered in the FAQ, so check that out.)
