So, it's just about making some process be in an atomicly consistent state before and during the backup?

So . . . are you saying that the else branch still successfully executes, thus setting the value of ECHO_ESC?

@Gilles I don't understand removing the UPDATE . . . without it, the question reads a bit funny, like "I don't know anything . . . here's the strace" Know what I mean?

Did you see the update? I think you were right, and there was no error . . . unless it was in a log I didn't know to look in.

It's a bitrock installer. I build it from their toolkit. It's supposed to run an interactive installer program. I'll check out strace.

comment Gnome 3 “broken” after upgrades, kind of looks like gnome 2 . . .?
So, I looked in those logs ;) and I found out that my GLX support was broken in my proprietary NVIDIA driver. I reinstalled the very same version of the driver, and it works. I suppose some dependency of the NVIDIA driver changed, and it needed to be reinstalled; I guess being installed by the binary installer doesn't allow for awareness of shifting dependencies, as would be the case if the thing was installed via the debian package management system.
