Thanks for all the replies!
First, I realize that I could go in one by one, but I'm trying to find a way to do this w/o all that hassle. If there are no other options, then I suppose I will have to resort to that.
I tried mounting the ddrescued image (of the /home partition, not the entire drive), and it failed:
# mount -o loop home.img /var/recover/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
# dmesg | tail
[53420.073341] EXT3-fs: corrupt root inode, run e2fsck
Remember that the partition was already subject to a fsck, albeit only part-way through (I canceled the fsck).
I'm wary of running fsck on the image, since that'll only bring me back to the state of the /home partition I have right now.
I'll try out some of the SourceForge tools
