oops, sorry, sent that last message too soon, it might have been
2.2.13.  The 2.2.14 system worked. I don't have access to the broken
system again until next Monday.

I will try it on another 2.2.14 system ASAP.

I think it is worth noting though that dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile worked,
although I didn't check if the output was valid.
