I also thought of that and tried /f/m.1 /f/m.2 etc for file names etc, thus
cutting the length of the command line down to somthing more reasonable, but,
to no avail, the error is that it is trying to open the first file of the
destination database as if it was a source backup file (and errors out
because the file does not yet exist)
So even with the command line cut down to under 128 bytes, the operation gives
me the same error.
