I am not able to reproduce this error now..strange!

I am running 8.3.0, and basically the error I was getting was "\m ignoring"
when I tried to do a restore. I was using the redirect " psql foo < db.dump"
and the "\i db.dump" method for the restore.
I will be vigilant and try to attempt this again if I find anything I will
report it ASAP.

But, what is the correct practice to do db_dumps? pg_dump db should suffice?
