tar not working correctly

Hi all,

One more problem to solve on GNU/kFreeBSD...

Since version 1.22, GNU tar has changed his behavior about the way it
handle decompressors. This has caused a lot of problems, and there is
even a bug reported #532570. 

However one problem is specific to GNU/kFreeBSD and can't be reproduced
on GNU/Linux. The following command now exits with a non-zero exit
value, as it is killed by a SIGPIPE:

  cat test.tar.gz | tar -xvzf -

It would be nice if someone can find time to debug the problem.
