It doesn't seem to be crashing from what I can gather, and it just
exists because it's running in --batch mode and the script is done.
Really, the only thing that's going wrong is that the excutable image is
not being written to disk; maybe it is crashing but it's not obvious.

I'm running the current git development sources pulled this weekend.  It
could be an issue with development, but I thought I would ask here first
in case it was a known issue/limitation of dumping.

I'll try a few more experiments before I submit an official bug report.
