I think I'm making progress.  I don't know if I've encountered an emulator
issue, or if the primos_22.1.4_1of3.tap tape image from Bitsavers is bad.  I
didn't encounter any errors unzipping the zip archive it was in.  When
restoring logical tape number 2 from it, I got an MT read error:

MT Read Error  000000  000300  020350... Unrecovered
Restore aborted on:  NETWORK_MGT*>ICS1DLLTSR.RUN
Unexpected EOF encountered:
Assuming End of Log. tape.
No LEOT record!
Illegal name.

followed by a variety of control characters and a few Unexpected EOF
encountered: errors.
