Yes, that would be good, thanks..  If you send me a patch I'll include
it.  If you don't have time and the solution will be obvious (I
haven't looked at the TarExtractor code in this area) don't bother and
I'll do it myself.

Obviously the libc bug should be fixed too.  There are two open bugs
for this problem, and I suggest we leave at least one them open until
the libc is OK.
