This was with snapshot amanda-2.4.5b1-200411221, built by the same 
configuration script I've used for months now.  I'm also on the 
amanda list, basicly functioning as the miners canary by building 
each new snapshot as they come out. There is nothing in the ChangeLog 
about amandad for quite a few versions past.  I've rebooted, just 
like I did yesterday morning, and a fresh dump was started about 10 
minutes ago.  Still in the estimate phase just yet.  Which is 
apparently where amandad is doing the fail...  10 minutes later, it 
made it through that ok, so I'd assume the catchup backup is going to 
be ok *this* time.

There was a patch of some kind not too long after the 2.6.9 release 
that killed amanda and it was backed out IIRC, did that get put back 
into 2.6.10-rc3-mm1 maybe?  Although the 2.6.10-rc3-mm1-V033-04 did 
run flawlessly for 8 days here once before, but its not now, thats 
what I was running when it made a zombie out of amandad last night.
That zombie was apparently reaped at some point in the night, it was 
gone this morning before I rebooted.  I wish I could give more clues, 
but the amandad logs aren't at all helpfull.
