The mode attribute of tar's nested tarfileset element corresponds to
the more general tarfileset's filemode attribute, this means you are
explicitly setting the mode for plain files only.  To specify the mode
for directories you must use the dirmode attribute.

Just saw the examples in tar's manual page are still using mode
instead of filemode and will fix it in svn.
