surface, the files appear to decompress correctly, but when I try to
actually read the FC chunks, it falls apart. There are corrupted bits
here and there, and the files appear to get truncated slightly. Unless I
make some sort of radical breakthrough, it looks like I'm going to need
to leave this alone for now. Oh well -- I have lots of other projects
I'm working on.
Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up! (Assuming, of course, that anyone
other than me is interested in this.)
