This is the first occurrence in the verse. The dot cannot be a revia 
because the word also carries a mahpak, as is clear from the image.

Indeed. Martin has posted the complete list of occurrences, saving me 
the job. I checked some of the Jeremiah occurrences against a facsimile 
of Aleppo. It might be an instructive exercise to check as many as 
possible of these references against Aleppo to see of any of them have 
holam, but I don't have time to do that.
