Yes, indeed. And you wrote before:

Actually also this can be solved, if one puts the fix_pdfoutput also at
the begin of the format \dump function, and into the final cleanup. Then
when a format is dumped, you also get the right message, and if nothing
is done (as in your example), you also get it. This is simple, since
fix_pdfoutput is executing only once. But i haven't tried it.
