Yes, it's absolutely safe to run on the source repository, it should
not cause anything to change in the source repo.

Is that the full error message you gave?

"Caught signal" would be what you'd get if the process were aborted by
a signal, like aborting it with Ctrl-C, or if some other user with
enough permissions sends a kill signal to your process or something
like that.

Is it always aborting at the same revision?

Maybe someone else is interfering with your work, and (accidently)
killing your process? Or maybe your remote (ssh / whatever) session
gets disconnected which causes the dump process to abort?
