You are indeed right, the sanity checks did not work correctly and
allowed the backup to take place even in case the background snapshots
were still enabled.
I have now fixed this issue, and the fix will be included in the 3.12b

No, I'm not polling right now; I still haven't found the time to test
to see if the polling actually works/is usable.
Also, since VMware Server 1.0.x hasn't got a good alternative to the
vmrun command, I'd have to create a substantial difference in the
logic, depending on the VMware Server version in use; one that polls,
for VMware 2.0.x and one that does not poll, for VMware 1.0.x
And by the way, the vmrun method is functional, if you create the
vmbackup user and give it the correct permissions, so why waste time
on a working piece of code, even if it's not the most elegant one?
I do not have time to spare, I'm barely keeping up with the bugs right
I hope you understand my point of view. :-)
You're welcome! :-)
