[Bug-tar] Bug in a Gnu tar

This is the test case:

OS: Solaris 10

Host: non-global zone

Tar version: 1.19

I use the following command to create a tar file:

tar cvPTWf list.file my.tar

Where list.file contents only one line:


After my.tar file creating I remove /usr/local/testdir dir,

And use the following command to open tar file:

tar xvPf my.tar

I get the following error message:

Tar: /usr/local/testdir/testfile: Cannot open: No such file or directory

Tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Some more info:

1.Using tar command without P flag creates local dir tree without any problem.

2.Using /usr/sbin/tar instead of Gnu tar fix the problem.

3.Gnu tar on other file system(not /usr/local) works properly.

4.Creating /usr/local/testdir dir prior to tar command execution fix the problem.

5. Gnu tar works properly on global zone.
