I started having an issue a number of weeks ago restoring Nandroid backups. I'm using Philz touch at the moment but I just verified that this also happens with stock CWM

I'm using dedupe format for backups, and the problem is that the data.ext4.dup file is being written incorrectly when the backup is made. I hesitate to call it corrupt when the issue is so simple. Lines in the file normally look like:

<f(file)/l(ink)/d(irectory)>	<perms>	...lots of fields...	<path of real file>	<path/SHA of blob>
The problems occurs when somehow a filename ends up split across multiple lines. Here's an example from a backup created with stock CWM:

d	771	10155	10155	1396525795	1402009315	1402009315	./data/	
d	700	10155	10155	1399614157	1401086052	1401086052	./data/

When dedupe goes to restore that, well, somethings clearly not right and it segfaults. I'm not sure why it happens in the first place, though, when I'm pretty sure the files don't have line breaks actually in their names, nor are those lines the longest in the file.

I can get the backup to restore successfully by just deleting those lines (I could probably just delete the line break, but they're invariably cache files that I don't need anyway), but it's a pain because I need a computer to do it.

Any thoughts?

Actually, the problem is that those files do have line breaks in their names. First of all, WTF. Second, though, it seems like CWM/the dedupe tool should know how to handle that.

Can anyone tell me at least where/how to get in touch with the CWM team, where their issue tracker is, etc?
