Install fails during back (see screenshot):

"There has been an error.
Error enaming /Applications/mysql/enterprise/monitor/java to /.../backup/java
The application will exit now."

There is plenty o' disk space.


a) Get same error updating from --> (from Nov 2007) unless I shut down agent(s)

b) update to succeeds (at least with agent not running)

How to repeat:
1) Install on OSX 10.4
  OR on OSX 10.4 or OSX 10.5

2) start up 1 agent (or not)

3) Run update installer

Gets error during backup (even if you say "don't backup")
