Interesting problem you've got here:)
I'm no tar-guu, but in the past I didn't succeed either. My solution
now would be to make a 2.2Gbytes partiton.  Have tar use it as its
destination, and the when it's full copy it over to a new place and
have tar use the same partiton again.  Haven't worked out the details
but I'm quit convinced this must be doable, goo luck:)
