I hate to followup to my own message, however I believe that I have
identified a possible culprit (without solution, of course). Observe:
	DUMP: estimated -1531206574 tape blocks.
	DUMP: 99.99% done, finished soon
I suspect an integer overflow somewhere, but this is highly unusual
asI've seen many posts in various archives where the exact command
syntax I had was used, and it showed positive tape block calculations
and real percentages. This filesystem is only 17GB, with 4.1GB used (as
I said earlier).
