	/sbin/dump 0bBuf 48 500000 /dev/nst0 $j

export TAPE=/dev/st0

/sbin/restore is 1
. is not on the tape
Root directory is not on tape

dev            mnt            tmp            u5 

/sbin/restore > quit

Tested other way around; in thad case file 1 looks like my root,
and file 2 DOES NOT show anything.

[ maybe related, maybe independant. ]
Trouble with writing multiple tape files from Solaris client; can
see only the last in the set.  This worked OK a while ago.
Am using the no-implicit-rewind device /dev/nst0.

Can you test dump 0.4b25 from rawhide?  It is believed that
this problem is now not reproduceable in this release.

I think this bug could be closed now...
