I've already posted about this to the samba list and samba-bugs (19990301); no
response, so I retry here.

A win95 pc, and a linux 2.0.33 with:
1) smbclient1.9.18 (patched to restore subdirs)
2) a patched smbclient2.0.2 or smbclient2.0.3.

On the win95 pc there's a share, this share contains a dir with:
MB 4
Files 142
Subdirs 2

Tarring from the pc to the linux box takes:
1.9.18: 10sec
2.0.2/2.0.3: 10sec

Restoring from the linux box to the pc takes:
1.9.18: 10sec
2.0.2/2.0.3: 7min 30sec

The tar made with 2.0.2 is restored in 10sec if I use smbclient1.9.18.

I used:
smbclient '\\pc\share' -N -Tc filename.tar
smbclient '\\pc\share' -N -Tx filename.tar

Is this a smbclient problem?
