Bug#746198: unar fails to extract test rar on arm.

Package: unar
Version: 1.1-2
Severity: important
x-debbugs-cc: debian-arm@lists.debian.org

I recently got the following report from a raspbian wheezy user (https://bugs.launchpad.net/raspbian/+bug/1165466).

Using the simple test file found at http://www.maximumcompression.com/data/files/text-test.rar <http://www.maximumcompression.com/data/files/text-test.rar>:

"unar text-test.rar" and "lsar text-test.rar" raise the error:

"text-test.rar: RAR
Archive parsing failed! (Unknown error.)"

unar on my Squeeze desktop happily extracted the above archive.

So I decided to test it in some test chroots (note: the i386 chroot was on an amd64 host, the arm chroots were all on an armv7 host)

debian wheezy i386: works
debian wheezy armel: fails
debian wheezy armhf: fails
debian jessie armel: fails
debian jessie armhf: fails
raspbian jessie: fails

So it looks like a general arm breakage, not something specific to raspbian.
