Unexpected action:
Problem: After successfully initially setting the Current ID, fails when attempting to change later (Option 5 in menu) . When pressing "5" it simply returns to the menu.
When exiting the script, with "z" it then asks you to set the server name. Eventually works, however expected result is asking name for server after pressing 5.
Repeatable: yes. Enter the Backup/Restore menu. Change server name initially (should be successful.) Attempt to change again and appears to fail until after exiting menu.

This was found when backing up a clean/initial install with a temporary name and then trying to set it back to permanent backup name.

fixed it. from looking at the code, that glitch may have existed for nearly one months; no report on it. I have the wrong variable zeroing out. it was /var/plexguide/server.id but should have been /var/plexguide/server.id.stored

updated in edge, will be out for the 7.015 update
