I have tracked down and fixed some bugs with long file names in clitar.c.
They had to do with headers being skipped during restore. The problem was that a long file name might start at the end of tarbuf and wrap around to the beginning of tarbuf. I now handle long file names a block at a time.
The fix spawned a problem where names got extra chars added in the middle. This is a problem with unfixtarname which needs to know whether or not it is at the beginning of a name or in the middle, as it should only remove a . or a \ from the front of the name.
These fixes and the ones posted a few days ago will all go into the source tree soon.
Along the way I have tripped over a long file name problem in samba. SetAtr calls do not like names longer than about 1023 bytes :-)
