This was fixed in 5.0.2 or 5.0.3, I can't recall which, but 5.0.3 is the 
current windows-fd version. The bug was in the windows bacula-fd.exe so if 
you're already running your dir/sd at 5.0.x you should be able to upgrade 
the client to fix it.  I don't recall if the problem was created during 
backup or during restore, though.
