Have you tried to build git HEAD version of tar?  That can be also more

Would you be able to use the debugger and see, where the problem actually
is?  You could start at 'read_and' function and than step over
'decode_header' and see why the process skips 'do_something()' call.

It can not be seen here in this bugreport, but I hope we can trust you :).

I am unable to test this architecture, sorry.  Your help would be more
than welcome.
