No preaching from me; I'm still on 5.4 which might be newer than yours 
but still obsolete :-)  If you've covered any security issues, run what 
works for you!

I've checked in the source code and on 5.4 and what I think to be 4.10 
in the CVS Repository, there is clearly an assignment
    honorlevel = 1

which gets overridden by any -h flag, and I can't see any other 
assignments.  Then a flag nonodump is set based on the honorlevel and 
dump level.  That looks correct to me.

My best guess is still some problem with your command line.
