Than I shall complain about your complaint, you have supplied no
relevant information that anyone can look at.  What did you do
exactly? What did you expect? I just tried backing up an directory
with a dot file and it work perfectly.

berch> mkdir foo
berch> touch foo/.bar
berch> tar cvf foo.tar foo
berch> tar --version | head -n 1
tar (GNU tar) 1.13.17

And please, don't be so rude to expect that someone will do everything
for you, we work on these projects in our spare time.  You could have
at least the courtesy to give us an decent bug report instead of
crying like a child that didn't get what he wanted.
