ok, this is partially a "nevermind..." post, but more to the point of the 
above error: it turns out I had dropped in another map I had downloaded at 
the same time.  Somehow, it copied as a zero byte file and ended up being the 
cause of the problem.  Now, ***had*** the above error read "...beyond EOF in 
file ONS-Mars3.ut2", I would have known INSTANTLY that I was to blame, not 
some mucked-up installation file.  As such, I had copied this via KDE's 
drag-n-drop FROM a .zip file (i.e., from one konquerer window to another, 
with the source-window looking inside a .zip file)  Occasionally this doesn't 
really copy the file, but only gets the file label (as in this case), but it 
is rare enough that I didn't think of it as the culprit.

My point: if you're going to go to the trouble of creating an error message in 
the first place, MAKE SURE the message contains enough information to 
diagnose the problem right then and there!
