Yes, in addition to being a Bacula bug, it is a Kernel bug, and I have filed a 
bug report, but I don't imagine they will fix it any time soon.  Sorry about 
the inconvenience, and the more than usual delay in reporting this, but I 
haven't been in the best of form lately (about 2 months now ...).

Thanks.  I have just released it to the bacula-beta and Win32-beta sections of 
Source Forge.  Since there are significant changes in the SD reservations 
system, I suggest you ensure that if there are problems that you can backup 
to 2.2.7 relatively easily ...

Feedback would be appreciated.

Best regards,
