no that makes sense, the bug report didn't.  but then i read it very
late and was not much awake anymore.  

so basically someone patched busybox tar to ignore archive permissions
and force 0777?  why??  (umask is 022 so even if it were simply
ignoring saved permissions you should never end up with 777).
