Replying to myself: no solution, but for others facing problems here are
the incantations to extract data from a defunct fileserver:

# Check volume id from RWrite column and partition letter (eg a)
# from server row for the volume you need to restore.
# Example: volid=42 partition=a (from "vicepa")
vos listvldb -localauth
# Dump data directly from the partition to a single dump file
voldump -part a -file jan14.dump -volumeid 42
# On a suitable server, extract files from the dump
mkdir restore
restorevol -file jan14.dump -dir restore
