	This is a symptom of an old tar/gzip bug which I thought got fixed.
(quick summary: null bytes get inserted into decompressed output which causes
 tar files names to be truncated. (and file contents to be corrupted))
I don't remember who fixed it, or what the exact problem with tar was, but
this is a serious problem that needs to be pulled up to the 1.6.2 branch
right away.  (I though it already was, perhaps the build machine isn't 
entirely up to date?)  Does anyone remember which PR this was?
