SubjectDump corrupts ext2?
Hi Folks,

I was looking for some scripts to backup ext2 partitions
to multiple CDR's when I stumbled onto "cdbackup" at

Alas, there is a warning saying:

"WARNING! When using this program under Linux, be sure not to use
dump with kernels in the 2.4.x series. Using dump on an ext2
filesystem has a very high potential for causing filesystem
corruption. As of kernel version 2.4.5, this has not been
resolved, and it may not be for some time."

I don't recall any problems like this, does anyone have
additional comments?
