Of course, I'll test it again. With BSD-tar also (thanks to Tim Kientzle :-).
Only once I found star more reliable than tar:
when sending archive over network with netcat and terminating
connection on receivers side (I forgot to set nc to automatic
disconnect with -q), all symbolic links were created as zero-length files.
It was some versions ago, and now GNU tar doesn't behave like this.
But I can see, that star looks more like, for instance, SCO UNIX tar program
(that's ok :-).
Thank You for advice.
