XSIBackup-DC 1.5.1.4: Error saving backup job

Hi,
I've encountered this weird error while saving the job from the command line: basically the saved script under etc/job/NNN, is missing a double quote for the description argument. This happens with the --backup option but not --replica for some reason..

Command (formatted for readability):

./xsibackup 
  --backup=cbt "VMs(zimbra)"   
  root@****:22:/vmfs/volumes/***/xsi-backup/zimbra/ 
  --description="backup zimbra to ** ****/xsi-backup"
  --compression=yes 
  --rotate=30 
  --backup-how=hot 
  --use-smtp=1 
  --mail-to="alert@****" 
  --remote=path=/usr/bin/xsibackup 
  --save-job=300

etc/jobs/300:

/vmfs/volumes/618b8705-22a9864e-05f0-0cc47a488786/XSI/XSIBackup-DC/xsibackup \
--backup \
"VMs(zimbra)" \
"root@****:22:/vmfs/volumes/****/xsi-backup/zimbra" \
--description=backup zimbra to ** ****/xsi-backup" \
--compression=yes \
--rotate=30 \
--backup-how=hot \
--use-smtp=1 \
--mail-to=alert@**** \
--remote=path=/usr/bin/xsibackup \
>> /vmfs/volumes/618b8705-22a9864e-05f0-0cc47a488786/XSI/XSIBackup-DC/var/log/xsibackup.log 2>&1

See that the --description in the file is missing a double quote after --descritpion=
As a quick workaround I'm trying editing the file and addin the missin char

Running from "VMware ESXi 6.7.0 Update 3" to "VMware ESXi 6.7.0 Update 3"

Thank you for your feedback, we'll try to reproduce and fix the issue you describe. It's probably something about quoting. Try to avoid quotes in the description in the meanwhile.

Hi,
just wanted to report that the issue is still present event with version 1.5.1.7.

Furthermore I noticed that in a job with the --exclude paramether, the regex is saved without quotas at all. Is this the correct behaviour?
