[Hi Chris!]

Is there a known bug in dump/restore on NetBSD/alpha 1.2A?  If not, is 
anyone else using it successfully?

	xaos (root) /u1 4% dump 0f /u1/var.dump /var
	  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Mon Aug  5 11:02:34 1996
	  DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
	  DUMP: Dumping /dev/rsd1e (/var) to /u1/var.dump
	  DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
	  DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
	  DUMP: estimated 828 tape blocks on 0.02 tape(s).
	  DUMP: dumping (Pass III) [directories]
	  DUMP: dumping (Pass IV) [regular files]
	  DUMP: DUMP: 826 tape blocks on 1 volumes(s)
	  DUMP: Closing /u1/var.dump
	xaos (root) /u1 5% restore tvf /u1/var.dump
	Verify tape and initialize maps
	Tape block size is 32
	Checksum error 244734, inode 0 file (null)
	Tape is not a dump tape
	xaos (root) /u1 6% uname -a
	NetBSD 1.2A alpha

Might this be a 64-bit problem?
