I can't backup to Amazon S3

I am using the 1.9 beta release, but I think this issue has not been solved, from what I have seen in previous posts.
When I test the connection to Amazon I get "Test was successful", however when I click on Backup nothing happens.
What I understand from the Logs below, is that I am trying to use an existing bucket under Amazon, which, my guess is, Robert, belongs to you.  Hence you will be the only one who can use it, and to whom this feature works. 
This is just a guess.  Do you think we can back up to a certain bucket?

FYI, the Log shows the below:
