Thanks for spotting. Fixed in SVN.

-        &systemcall($tar, "-cf", $options, $backup_name, "--files-from", $filesfilename);
+        &systemcall($tar, $options, "-cf", $backup_name, "--files-from", $filesfilename);
         chmod 0600, $backup_name;
          my $rootid = 0;
         chown $rootid, $rootid, $backup_name;
