Is anyone seeing problems with dump on NetBSD-1.4.2/i386?

I use amanda for backups. sd2d has not had a successful backup since
I upgraded to 1.4.2 (from 1.3.2) and I'm using the same amanda
binaries. Other fs's backup ok. I'm out of town right now and a
backup started the morning I left was still running 2 days later!
I kill -6'd one of the dump processes which had accumulated 82cpu secs
(cf. 0.1 for all the other dump processes doing sd2d), it would appear
that I did not get a core file though.
My kernel has SCSI_VERBOSE set and dmesg etc show no complaints,
the disk appears to be working ok and as can be seen above sd2 is only
a 1G disk.
