Will do that tomorrow.

Just an idea: The USB key in question was new and I only created the
file system on it the usual way (fdisk, bsdlabel, newfs). Then I
restored the dump on it (which took 26 hours for 3.1 GByte dump file).
The USB key boots fine, btw. 

Could it be that unwritten/unformatted blocks are read as random data
from that USB key? Should I overwrite the full USB key from /dev/zero?
