(Wrong link in my previous post, sorry!)

The patch proposed here


seems to solve this bug!

(Now, with tar files, there is only the annoying bug #1655)

Many thanks,

I want to flag that current CVS 23.0.60 of Emacs stack dumps when
loading tar.[bz2/gz] files, on Cygwin.

This happens with simple file like this

$ cat hello.c
/* hello.c */
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
   printf("Hello World\n");

$ tar -cjf hello.tar.bz2 hello.c

$ emacs -Q&
C-x C-f /tmp/hello.tar.bz2 RET

and after bunzipping it stack dumps

[2]+  Aborted                 (core dumped) emacs -Q

If the file is a simple .tar (hello.tar):

$ emacs -Q&
C-x C-f /tmp/hello.tar RET

the file is loaded BUT...

...BUT closing it (click on the 'x' of the tool-bar) and reloading

C-x C-f /tmp/hello.tar RET

still aborts:

[1]+  Aborted                 (core dumped) emacs -Q

The last useful CVS which works fine with tar files is that

cvs ... -D "27 May 2008 12:00"

Instead, the first which does NOT work is -D "28 May 2008 12:00".

I haven't searched between these two dates (hours).

From the lisp/ChangeLog I see that about May 27 there was several changes to tar mode.
