I'm getting the same message, in the same situation (running 'dump', 
courtesy of amanda). Searching the mailing list archives, I don't
see any followup to this message.

I'm assuming this is a fairly benign error, but it'd be nice to know 
whether I should be worrying or not.

I'd include a copy of the boot probe for my disks, but I can't, because 
the uptime on this box is so long that the last boot probe has rolled out 
of /var/log/messages* B-)
