Thanks for sending in your patch Mikołaj, I tested MozyHome with it, but 
it didn't help anything, the service still wouldn't start. I don't have 
the experience to work on that patch by myself, but if someone else 
starts on it and would like assistance making tests or something I'm 
happy to try.
