Judging by the source code of rx.c, 1.4.7.dfsg1-6+lenny2 does not
contain these patches.
I'm not sure how this bug explains that the problem suddenly came up
after months of successfully 'backup dump'ing.
But I will try and see if these patches solve the problem. Am I right to
assume that they (only) need to be applied on the file server with these
volumes (not on the db servers or the tape coordinator)?
