Hi Patrik.

Just to let you know, I have not started on this issue yet, but have still got this flagged for attention and have been sorting out other dump/load issues which hopefully will make this one easier to address.

If necessary (if I don't get to it soon) I'll file an issue to track it so it doesn't get forgotten.
