when running the attached test-script cpio-2.7
sends many 'malformed number' error messages
to stderr. Is support for old tar archives broken ?
Same problem with 2.9 ...

Greetings from Munich



# copy gcpio-2.5 and gcpio-2.7 to this directory

find /etc/fstab /etc/hosts | pax -w -x tar > etc.tar
file etc.tar
./gcpio-2.5 --version
./gcpio-2.5 -t < etc.tar
./gcpio-2.7 --version
./gcpio-2.7 -t < etc.tar
