[Bug-tar] tar does not recognize nfs device

Hello all,

I'm running into a problem where tar does not seem to recognize that it is running on a nfs device. The reason I think that is the case are the leading zeroes in the snapshots file:

address@hidden@address@hidden@address@hidden/sp....  etc, etc

this is causing some trouble, as when the nfs device number changes, all of a sudden there is a full backup instead of an incremental. tar is being called through AMANDA.

I have seen the same results under two environments:

Ubuntu Edgy
GNU tar-1.15.91-2
kernel: 2.6.17-12-generic

Ubuntu Gutsy
GNU tar-1.18-2
kernel 2.6.22-14-generic

any insights that might help me track down why tar does not recognize nfs?

Thanks for you help!
