Curiously enough, if you don't load tar-mode manually, it doesn't
crash (which will probably go a long way towards explaining why no one
noticed this before).

Does anyone see this problem on platforms other than MS-Windows?

It doesn't crash for me with these steps.  Maybe here the exact
contents of the tarball does matter, at least the file names in it
(look at the Lisp backtrace).
