Ah, euphemisms. ;-) Personally, I associate "double free or corruption
(!prev)" with memory trouble or situations where a library cannot
recover from an error state and needs to bail out using abort(). Not
being able to (over)write an existing file is not that serious, IMO.

No, and I don't expect any, as I am assuming that "notmuch dump" will
only ever read the DB.
