The following code produces an error:

> f <- function() { x <- 4; dump("x") }
> f()
Error in dump("x") : Object "x" not found

In the documentation the limited functionality 
of the current version of dump() is mentioned. 
It may be a good idea to give this as an example where dump()
does not (yet) work.
