Since upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04 I noticed restore has been suggesting it cannot restore all the files intended to be captured by dump.

I am seeing output from restore along the lines of
restore: ./tigi/.cache/dconf/user: ftruncate: Invalid argument

I took the dump using an LVM2 snapshot and restored against the same snapshot 3 minutes later.

    28/6/2012 rumex: I restored to /mnt/restoredFs and performed a diff -r /snapshop /mnt/restoredFs. The diff found no differences. I would cautiously assume that this error message is potentially only annoying.
