    Hi,

    I'm afraid I need more information like the text surrounding the error to see where it occured. Also please supply me with an output of ls of your directory in which the file -.bz2 is located. The error occured because somehow the filename "-" got passed to pbzip2 for compression and that can only be because for some reason the filename wasn't correctly assmbled. However I can't explain at the moment why the filename would only be "-".
