by "multivolume" I meant incremental restores (bad words, sorry).
With my changes, the flags from the first volume will be applied first.

This cause a problem in case a flag changed between 2 incremental dumps,
but it's not clear if such a change will even be in a incremental dump
(I'm not sure a flag change is enouth to get a file dumped again in an
incremental dump).
