I found the problem - my dump image was corrupt :-). I now have a clean
v7 dump of /, and there are no complaints from restor.

I've had a few people volunteer to try out the code. I'll clean it up,
finish off the docs, and put it up for ftp in a few days, with an email
on the PUPS mailing list on how to retrieve it.
