Description: ------------ Ran into this, decided to just fix it ;) It happens when you try to read a tar file with deep paths -- the tar format can't handle long pathnames, and tar uses a special hack in its own format to get around it. If you ever see @LongLink, that's it. The fix is a simple replacement of the read() function in Read/Tar.php It's more than 20 lines, so I can't include the patch in this report. Develpoers notified directly, this report is just to have a record of the bug and let others know about it in case it takes a while for them to find time to get the fix in place.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. Thanks!, fixed in CVS.
