Although out-of-place tar deletion undoubtedly is more robust than
in-place deletion, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a bug, too.
(which is really bad for Debian infrastructure, so we should
identify/fix this).

Can you reproduce the problem with:
$ cat tango-9.3.3-rc2.tar | tar --delete <filespec-to-delete> > \

Cheers and Best Regards,
