Aaah; that's interesting.

Probably the commands that  ldump.sty  uses to create the specialised
format file need to be changed for the later version of teTeX,
or maybe it's a question of where the  .fmt  file is placed.

Are you re-using an old document, and trying to use a previously
\dump'd format ?  That will certainly fail with a different
TeX engine running LaTeX.

Or maybe the variable in  texmf.cnf  isn't allowing the working
directory to be searched for formats.

Evidence of these problems should show up in  images.log .

Of course.
But if you can completely solve the problem anytime,
please let me know so I can implement the necessary fixes.

Strange how that can happen.  :-)

BTW, teTeX 3.0 is a *major* upgrade to TeX.
It's not a step to be taken lightly, if you are used
to doing things even just a little out-of-the-ordinary.
