XSIBackup-DC 1.5.1.3 : Error parsing job

Creating a new Backup job with GUI creates a job file:

/xsi-dir/xsibackup \
--backup \
"VMs(NavApp3)" \
"/vmfs/volumes/xsibackup02/DC" \
--description="NavApp3" \
--mail-to="administrator@xxxxxxxxxxx.de" \
--subfolder="NavAPP3" \
--use-smtp="1" \
--subject="NavAPP3" \

ooh, I forgot to add the config-backup option, so adding it with the GUI changes to job file to:

/xsi-dir/xsibackup \
--config-backup \
--backup \
"VMs(NavApp3)" \
"/vmfs/volumes/xsibackup02/DC" \
--description="NavApp3" \
--mail-to="administrator@xxxxxxxxxxx.de" \
--subfolder="NavAPP3" \
--use-smtp="1" \
--subject="NavAPP3" \
>> /xsi-dir/var/log/xsibackup.log 2>&1

and now, trying to edit the job again with the GUI gives errors:

+---------------------------------------------------+
| Action argument not recognized, setting to <none> |
| Source argument not recognized, setting to <none> |
| Target argument not recognized, setting to <none> |

Was that the exact sequence of events?
We have tried to reproduce this behaviour, still we couldn't.
We know it's perfectly possible that such a bug could be present, still it might depend on the (c)ESXi version.
Please, let us know as much details as you can.
