[Bug-tar] tar -T improperly handle escaped characters

The `--files-from` (`-T`) option does not properly work in 1.27 but was properly working in 1.26. It fails in the presence of escaped characters as described in the following code snippet:

mkdir test
cd test
echo something > foo-bar
echo 'foo\\055bar' > baz
tar -cf qux.tar -T baz

1.26 correctly creates a tarball with the file `foo-bar` in it.
1.27 fails with the following error:
tar: foo\\055bar: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
