Try a new full backup with

     dump -0aLuf /mnt/da0/backup-compaq.1.dump /

then for the incremental use

     dump -1aLuf /mnt/da0/backup-compaq.1.dump /

The option you're missing is "u", but "L" is worth using as well when 
you're backing up a mounted filesystem.

You could hack the contents of /etc/dumpdates to avoid having to repeat 
the level zero dump if you know the date and time when the original one 
was started.
