I have an Archive Anaconda tape drive which won't let me restore
from dump tapes made prior to my recent upgrade to 2.2.2.

The drive:	Archive Anaconda 1.35 GB SCSI tape drive
Dumps:		/sbin/dump 0unBbf 1200000 10 /dev/nrst0 <file system>

Since my entire drive is only 1GB, I use /dev/nrst0 and dump a few
filesystems to the same tape.  

After upgrading to 2.2.2 last week, I cannot read either of my
most recent dump tapes:

# /sbin/restore if /dev/rst0
Tape block size (512) is not a multiple of dump block size (1024)
# /sbin/restore ibf 10 /dev/rst0
Checksum error 35657234340, inode 0 file (null)
Tape is not a dump tape
# /sbin/restore ibf 1 /dev/rst0
Tape read error while trying to set up tape
continue? [yn] n

How can I get at these tapes?
