The next backup/restore worked. Crisis averted.

Or maybe just postponed. IBBackupSurgeon has a free trial version that
might diagnose the problem. It looks to me as if you've got a bad block in
the first backup file. Now, if you've got to have a bad block somewhere, a
redundant backup file is a pretty good place to have it, but my experience
is that bad blocks are sort of like mice ... one isn't so bad, but they
proliferate and sooner or later, they eat something you actually wanted.

Good luck,
