Re: Bug in dumper

Just to set the record straight: none of the text I wrote is still in the
mail below - yet my name is?

Anyways, dumper works fine for me (on an NT/4 box with all the latest), 
which is what I told the original poster. I also told him to take a closer 
look at the exit code of dumper.

I just don't like being mis-quoted :|
