------- Additional Comments From peterreilly@apache.org  2005-01-10 17:13 -------
I have found some doc on this.
info tar for gnu tar 1.13.25 (installed on fedora core 2) says this:
"The Standard Format"
===================
..
..
   Physically, an archive consists of a series of file entries
terminated by an end-of-archive entry, which consists of 512 zero
bytes.

Googling came up with a defintion for gnu tar 1.15.1:
"Basic Tar format"
..
..
Physically, an archive consists of a series of file entries terminated by an
end-of-archive entry, which consists of two 512 blocks of zero bytes. 

Note the difference in definition!.

I suppose we need to look in the gnu tar cvs for reasons for the
change in definition.
