           Summary: Tar task leaves garbage at end of archive
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: m4341@abc.se


The tar task generates some error at the end of the archive, which causes some
buggy tar implementations to complain or do unexpected things. Namely busybox
suffers from the garbage at the end of the archive where the garbage causes it
to overwrite some files with incomplete data. Possibly other tar's around also
has problems with this data. (I haven't seen them yet.)

Current workaround is to unpack and re-pack with external tar program, but
that's cumbersome.
