The textdump bugs are pretty trivial in 0.3-x. So trivial that I hadn't
even noticed them, TBH.

But 0-3.x has got some pretty severe changes from 0.2-x and it's not
something you should be using unless you're handy with a debugger, and
know how to find complex memory/disk/database/cache-handling bugs.

Realistically speaking, 0.3-x is not even in beta-test. It's still alpha
test, and prone to crash at any moment. Mostly old bugs that we are
tickling in new ways.
