tar strange behaviour


I do not seem to be able to use tar for multivolume archives
on my Debian1.1

I make a tar file of a file like:

        tar cvMf /dev/fd0 myfile

and this works all right, prompting me for next volumes and
the archive is created OK. I can look up its contents with

        tar tvMf /dev/fd0

it goes through all the floppies asking for the next and
everything seems to be fine, but when I try to unpack it
with the command:
        tar xvMf /dev/fd0

literally what I get is this:
        Segmentation fault

The tar file was created on the same machine using tar version

Could anybody suggest a way of solving this problem please ?
