It's a coincidence, the newline is not needed to trigger the bug.
The real reason are backslash caracters: by default tar "unquotes"
the filenames it reads with -T option, i.e. it translates
backslash+char combinations to single char (\n -> newline,
\t -> tab, etc.). However, output produced by find (both -print0
and -print) does not need such processing. I will add a
--no-unquote option to handle such cases.
Thank you for reporting the issue.
