[SUMMARY] ufsrestore error

My problem had been not being able to restore a file system dumped over 2
tapes, using 'ufsrestore if'

As most people suggested, 'ufsrestore rf' worked.

I had a problem after first tape was finished, but my predecessor told me
'mt ... offline' would work while ufsrestore is asking for the second
volume, so I moved to the second tape and answered yes, and it
worked. Just in case.

Somehow 'ufsrestore Rf' did not work.
