the problem was found by Jeff Nichols working at U. of New Hampshire. The password for the mysql server had a shell character in it which causes troubles when it is printed out to the defaults file and then read back in for mysqldump.

This should be flagged as a bug in the archive procedure. The fix might be as easy as escaping the password in the file -- haven't looked at it yet.
