I'm not talking about this particular printf; I'm talking about output 
in general.  If a tar-file is written to stdout, I wouldn't like any
debugging output to get written to stdout too; so -E should be
implicitly assumed in the case of writing a tar-file to stdout.

Sorry if I was not clear enough in the previous message.

I'm not sure this has been fixed in the current sources; my local
build based on yesterday's CVS tree won't connect to SMB servers I've
got access to, not even one running SAMBA 1.9.18p10 :-(
