Hi Paul,

Thanks for the notification.
I'd be glad to try and test.  The problem is I don't have a clue how to go 
about trying to patch and compile.
I pull binaries down from a HPUX repository. If someone has the time to explain 
the steps and any compile switches I could try.
Or I have a HPUX 11i v3 server you could access.  But I'd have get 
authorization first.

The porting site only has tar 1.26 source and was put therer by a  Francois 
Pinard <address@hidden whom I've included on this email.
Francois if you are seeing this email would you be able to generate new HPUX 
11iv3 binaries with this patch (patch is a separate email, if you'll replay I 
be glad to sent it to you.

Thank you all for helping,

Paul, Joerg, Nathan

You already did it, by sending email to bug-tar.  :-)

I just now pushed a patch and if you like you can try it out from the git 
repository <http://savannah.gnu.org/git/?group=tar>.
At some point it should find its way into a new release.  Unfortunately it's 
not a trivial fix.  I have not tested it under HP-UX (I don't have access to 
any such machine) so any testing you can do would be appreciated.

Here are the patch details:
