Steve thanks for answering, especially in your condition:-)
I _do_ understand you perfectly. But what you describe is not the case
here, in fact on purpose I redirect 2>/dev/null as well.
I reckon it's the fact that in the tar sequence, just like the one you
give, one adds the 'B' option on both sides especially in networked copy
thus ' tar cBf - * | (cd /foo/bar; tar xBf -)'
smbtar (or I should say smbclient) doesn't seem to support it.
