He mentioned he uses czech locales, so he probably made a mistake in the
translation to english. In the screenshot he provided is the message
which is still present in tar-1.25 - in to_chars_subst() function
create.c:267 . 

It reminds me I had similar report in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=516309 , however I had
problems with the reproducer and after that it got off my radar because
of another bugzillas. In comment
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=516309#c17 may be a pointer
where is the culprit of this rare problem with huge files.
