Dear GNU Tar developers,

I was downloaded and installed a static build of GNU Tar 1.30 using

./configure CFLAGS=--static --disable-shared

But when I was trying to unpack the Bash tarball (as shown below), I got a segmentation fault.

wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bash/bash-4.4.18.tar.gz
tar xf bash-4.4.18.tar.gz

I must say that this didn't happen for a few other tarballs I checked for example when unpacking the Make tarball of the link below


The problem also didn't exist when I built to allow shared libraries (without the two options above).

I was wondering if this is a known bug or if I have done something wrong?

Thank you very much for all the great work on GNU Tar,
