fullBackupCompressedTo: fails for raw character partitions

"SystemRepository fullBackupCompressedTo:" will fail with the following
error message when applied to a raw character partition:

  topaz> run
  SystemRepository fullBackupCompressedTo: '/dev/rchardevice'
  %
  -----------------------------------------------------
  GemStone: Error         Nonfatal
  An attempt to write to file '/dev/rchardevice' failed because
    '[rdbfio.gzclose !TCP@myhost#dbf!/dev/rchardevice errno=22,
    EINVAL, Invalid ... .This error terminates the backup and the backup
    file is not usable.
  Error Category: [GemStone] Number: 2305 Arg Count: 2
  Arg 1: /dev/rchardevice
  Arg 2: [rdbfio.gzclose !TCP@myhost#dbf!/dev/rchardevice errno=22,
    EINVAL, Invalid argument (programmer error)]


After hitting this error, the system will still think that a backup
is in progress.  You will need to execute:

  SystemRepository abortFullBackup

to clear the confusion.

Workaround

Use the equivalent block device name for the chosen raw partition.
