Finally I was able to recover my old FileVaulted-user from my Tiger SuperDuper! backup. The Users folder in that backup seemed empty but weighed many GB. TinkerTool then revealeded a new sparse image in the Users folder, with my old user. I couldn't open it from there, as explained earlier. But I copied it out of the backup sparse image onto my FireWire drive, and then to my new hard disk. From there, I could open the user sparse image, after entering the old master FileVault password. One last thing: at some point, when I was recovering some files, the computer crashed (kernel panic). After running repair privileges in Disk Utility, I could no longer open the user sparse image. I guess the Leopard Disk Utility screwed the Tiger File-Vaulted sparse image. But after copying it again from my FireWire drive to my HD, I could open it again and continue to recover the remaining files. Thanks, SD!
