Is there an issue with dump updating dumpdates on 9.1 and 9.2.  Both of those systems are writing /etc/dumpdates, but are using the time of 0 so the output from dump looks like:

Fri Oct 25 00:45:00 PDT 2013
 DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: the epoch
 DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
 DUMP: Dumping snapshot of /dev/ada0p2 (/) to /usr2/backups/zool-root.tdump
 DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
 DUMP: Cache 16 MB, blocksize = 65536
 DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
 DUMP: estimated 8487220 tape blocks.
 DUMP: dumping (Pass III) [directories]
 DUMP: dumping (Pass IV) [regular files]
 DUMP: 16.36% done, finished in 0:25 at Fri Oct 25 01:16:02 2013
 DUMP: 36.55% done, finished in 0:17 at Fri Oct 25 01:12:50 2013
 DUMP: 59.63% done, finished in 0:10 at Fri Oct 25 01:10:38 2013
 DUMP: 91.21% done, finished in 0:01 at Fri Oct 25 01:07:24 2013
 DUMP: DUMP: 8492396 tape blocks on 1 volume
 DUMP: finished in 1289 seconds, throughput 6588 KBytes/sec
 DUMP: level 0 dump on the epoch
 DUMP: Closing /usr2/backups/zool-root.tdump

The first line is from the date command.  Dumpdates always show a 1969 (the epoch) date.
