Restoring the level 0 dump onto our new server went without a hitch, but restoring the multivolume L1 dump on the new system encountered a number of odd problems. The partition is ext3 (in both cases). The attached transcript shows a "re-enactment" -- the first time through, restore segfaulted on the third and last volume, but I neglected to save the transcript. The L1 dumps were verified when they were made, and the MD5 checksums still match, so I do not suspect corruption of the L1 dumps.
The symptoms look suspiciously similar to the "[ 1165648 ] segfault restoring level 1 backup" issue, where resizing the partition was suspected. So I went through my notes, and am pretty sure that the partition was not resized between the level 0 and level 1 dumps, though it had been resized some time before.

Please let me know if there's any other information you would like.
