Trouble with dump / restore

This is probably only marginally related to SELinux.  I'm trying to learn
how to use dump and restore (via DVD+/-R), and I've gotten it working to
the point where the files seem to be OK but the SELinux Extended Attributes
are not.  I used the commands (as root, with / being LogVol02):

    # mount -r /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/lv00
    # dump -0 -L xxx -B 4590208 -f /tmp/dumpdvd /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
        [cdrecord used once per tape, from another terminal]
        # cdrecord -v -sao dev=dvd -data /tmp/dumpdvd
    # restore -C -f /dev/dvd

OK, some of that is superstition, but it works except for about one of
these messages for each file, and no other errors (according to grep -v):

    ./path/to/file: EA foo_x:object_r:bar_y value changed

What am I doing wrong?
