Yes, it should.  However, we need to be able to reproduce the problem.
I can reproduce it if I don't use -cMf for the very first tape, or
if I use an unusual option like -o or -H ustar (possibly in TAR_OPTIONS).
I can also "reproduce" it if we assume that you have a bad tape, that
somehow passed the checksum tests.  But I can't reproduce it otherwise.
So it sounds like we are still at a loss as to why you are observing
the symptoms that you do.
