Reverting to e2fsprogs-1.41.14-2.fc15.x86_64 works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Apparently this is already fixed upstream in 1.42~WIP-2011-09-16-1 according to a Debian bug report:
I -just- built the newer e2fsprogs in rawhide.
Can you retest?
Grabbed 1.42-0.3.WIP.0925.fc17 from koji, and that works fine, thanks. You can probably close this one.
(Though I'm wondering how nobody else seems to have opened a bug on this, don't people back their systems up? ;)
Maybe not with dump ;)
