Thank you.  The patch is obviously an improvement.  However, maybe we
can even go further, and eliminate all instances.  Have you checked how
relevant this `tar' implementation still is?  If it isn't, them I'm
inclined to just note this in NEWS (please also note your fix in NEWS,
it is important!) that we don't support it any more.  Then, please check
again that we haven't missed any occurrence, and apply to master.

If you don't have time, let me know and I'll finish this up.  Anyway
I'll pull this into branch-1-10.

Cheers, and thanks again,
