I'd found some RAD-50 filenames in the headers at constant positions,
names like I24J19.DAT and K82LOG.DAT.  Not the source code I was 
hoping for - maybe some kind of login/logout logs, or program usage logs. 

The smaller FLB files seem to contain some text and code 
fragments, confirming the idea that it didn't bother to 
compress the last partial block of a file.

Someone on comp.sys.dec thought they might be from the FMS-11
forms management system but that doesn't make sense based on
the contents I see so far.
