Do you need to dismount /usr to dump it?

If I boot to single-user mode (reboot, hit space, do boot -s) and dump /usr
to a file, I get read errors on a couple of blocks.
Running fsck -y (also in single user of course) did not show a problem, but
it did not clear up the errors when I tried the dump again.
I thought it was safe to dump /usr in single-user mode. Will I need to boot
off a CD or try another trick to get a clean dump of /usr? Or perhaps I am
not using the right fsck options?
the dump command I used is:
dump 0af /someotherplace/filename.dump /usr
This seemed to work fine for / and my other filesystems.
