File writes via output redirection fail in the same way as extraction with
'tar'. File copy with 'cp' works.
Editing a sufficiently large file with 'vi' and writing will produce
error messages about an unknown file format and claims that the file is
truncated, but later inspection indicates no obvious damage. (I was
editing my "~/.ssh/known_hosts" file at the time. Subsequent use of the
file by the ssh client succeeded--writing this very message over that
