Yeah, I know that this patch was the cause, and IIRC it only affects
a hard linked directory. What I found is that the iterative dump
actually contains all the correct changes (the restore part of the
test does not fail) - it's just that the dump image table of
contents does not contain the all the changes. I haven't tracked
down why the dump TOC does not contain a modification that is
actually in the dump yet....

Cheers,

Dave.
