I don't know anything about dump internals, but could it be related
to heavy disk activity? The machine is hardly in quiescent state,
but runs usually at a load of 1.x, and the process may create
temp files anywhere from a couple of dozen to a few hundred MB in size.
Just while I was watching the backup fail, df varied by maybe 200MB.
