I use storeBackup to do periodic backups. I use it with gzip compression (bzip2 is terrible slow).
I’ve just checked my last backup with storeBackupCheckBackup and it reports an md5 error on a lot of files (i guess ALL of them).
I’ve checked manually, opening some of the .gz files reported as corrupt and they are not corrupt, I can open them with no problem.
May be some kind of error of storebackup calculating md5?
Someone using storebackup?

Which version of storeBackup do you use?
(You can get it by running
This kind of error is not yet known.
