Since upgrading to version 1.6.0, the following warnings have appeared in an error_log file in the wp-admin directory:

[20-Dec-2015 08:24:14 UTC] PHP Warning: Call to protected Awf\Session\Segment::__destruct() from context '' during shutdown ignored in Unknown on line 0 [20-Dec-2015 08:24:14 UTC] PHP Warning: Call to protected Awf\Session\Segment::__destruct() from context '' during shutdown ignored in Unknown on line 0 [20-Dec-2015 08:24:18 UTC] PHP Warning: Call to protected Awf\Session\Segment::__destruct() from context 'Awf\Application\Application' during shutdown ignored in Unknown on line 0 [20-Dec-2015 08:24:18 UTC] PHP Warning: Call to protected Awf\Session\Segment::__destruct() from context 'Awf\Application\Application' during shutdown ignored in Unknown on line 0

Although warnings, this set of messages is generate several times per backup run. The warnings were not generated in version 1.5.3.

Yes, I am aware. We had worked around a major security issue in older versions of PHP, the same that was worked around by Joomla! yesterday night (late evening in your timezone). Unfortunately the workaround was a bit too paranoid and ended up generating this warning. I have found the root cause and will publish a new version (1.6.1) with the necessary fix in the next 48 hours.
