I need to look into this more obviously and try other dumps etc, but I even tried extracting a single (smaller) directory and it also segfaulted, has dump been tested properly with ext4?

# restore -f ../p34-root-2010-03-02.ext4dump -r .
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

And from another day:

p34:/x2/bup/p34/2010-03-01/d# restore -f ../p34-root-2010-03-01.ext4dump -r .
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Does anyone use dump/restore with ext4?
