When I untar the .tgz I get files named tapeblock[0-33]
In tapeblock4 is an index of the original tape, which lists the
various files on the tape. These are numbered *1* til *34*

I think this is just an off by one thing, because there is no tapeblock34
at all.

Please check if this is the case. I don't have any PDP operational so I
cannot verify the contents of tapeblock33. But I'm pretty sure this is /usr
