GNU tar did never handle this before......

I noticed and reported this 2 years ago when I finished implementing
incremental restores for star.

If you like, check incremental backup/restore with star


it works using a similar algorithm as ufsdump/ufsrestore does
and has ben intensively tested wich all possible changs that may happen
on a filesystem.
