PDP-8 "Dumprest" experience?

I am just beginning to use Dave Gesswein's DumpRest from
I successfully restored TD8-E DECtapes with it. That enabled me to
install OS/8 on RK05 etc.
I also (roughly) integrated the dumprest utilities into OS/8 (I can
start them and they reboot OS/8 back to the monitor). And they now use a
separate high speed rs232 port to connect to my PC (as my kermit does).
When I use restrk05, I always get a checksum error. I just have read one
RK05 disk - three times. What I get is always the same checksum error
printout with the same checksum. And the generated files are identical
as well. I can also successfully run them in SIMH.
So what's wrong? Does anybody has a clue? Is that a known problem?
