It throws exception on "Create Backup" button

It's this NPE:

at org.netbeans.nbbackupsettings.Backup.analyze(
at org.netbeans.nbbackupsettings.Backup.(
at org.netbeans.nbbackupsettings.Main.backupActionPerformed(
at org.netbeans.nbbackupsettings.Main.access$200(
at org.netbeans.nbbackupsettings.Main$3.actionPerformed(
at javax.swing.AbstractButton.fireActionPerformed(

Hope you fix this soon!

Backing up settings doesn't produce any results or errors

Windows XP, fully patched, NetBeans 6.0.1. After browsing to the installation folder and browsing to a folder to save the generated backup file, I click "Create Backup" and nothing happens - no error, no confirmation, and no file (I have searched all drives). Any documentation or examples that I can refer to? This plugin would solve a significant problem where I work...
