running restore non-interactive

Im trying to setup a machine to mirror its entire drive using
dump/restore to a secondary drive.
The dump works fine, but at the end of each session, restore always
asks "set owner/mode for '.'"?. This makes it impossible to automate
the task, which is what I would to accomplish.
I have read the man-page, browsed the internet and searched trough
mailinglist archives, but nowhere have I found a way to make restore
assume that the answer to the question should be 'yes'. I have come
across a few patches floating around that is supposed to fix this,
but I would prefer not to use patches against the base system.
I know that there are other utilities available that could
probably do this, but Ive been teached that you should always use
dump when doing full backups of the root filesystem, and Im also
comfortable using dump and restore so I would like to continue to do
so if possible.
Any ideas or suggestions?
