The only thing I can say is that CVS dated (-D) "27 May 2008 19:58" works and "27 May 2008 19:59" doesn't. 'diff' shows that the differences are only in tar-mode.el file (and ChangeLog, excluding */CVS/*).

Can you post the diffs here?


Also, does the problem happen with any tarball, or only with some of

It happens with all tarball I tried (someone created in 2003!). When I discovered this casually, I created a simple test case: a tarball with only an hello.c file.

If the tarball is a 'tar' only (no compressed, i.e. hello.tar) then [1]

emacs -Q&
C-x C-f hello.tar RET

works, but closing it (i.e. clicking the 'x') and retyping

C-x C-f hello.tar RET

causes Emacs to abort as described (and this with several tar files).

If the tarball is compressed (bz2/gz), Emacs crashes immediately (after "Parsing... done)").


[1] Also: "emacs -Q -nw" gives the same results.
