Oops, sorry; the issue exists with both GNU tar 1.14 and 1.5.91.

OK, thank you.  You wrote:

Unfortunately, it seems Solaris tar bails out at the first path longer
than 100 characters:
 $ /bin/tar tvf gtar.ustar.512
 tar: blocksize = 7

 drwxr-xr-x 1053/1053      0 Sep 28 15:43 2006 

I do not see any error diagnostics here.  Did it display some?

No errors; it just terminated. I guess it interprets a block starting with a NUL as the EOF block.
