By the way, am I correct that your patch also allows extrac09.at to pass
(even on Solaris)?  As I read the history, it seems to be expected that
listed03.at will still fail in this particular situation, but the point
of the extrac09 test is that it should be possible to work around the
issue in the extract case.
