The path to the non-working copies does contain "system:/media/".

Ok, this path (in Konqueror):


results in a look inside the tar file. It doesn't show the web page, but
rather its components. Lots of jpegs, gifs, a css and js file.

Rereading you instructions I realized I inadvertently left off

Ah! Shortening the above link to:



results in what looks like an instant redirect to:


Which shows the content of that folder. When I try the copied file using
the above link, it opens normally!

Two odd things I noticed. The above link leaves "system" out of the path.
And Konqueror is not displaying my chosen default of Detailed List View,

Typing the path exactly as you suggested:


also opens the file as the desired web page.
