Tar problem - Not sure where to ask

This is my post in this forum & I'm not sure where to post this.

I have just installed Arch in my office system 2 days ago. I was extracting tomcat 5.0.28 official tar.gz in my arch system and it gave this error:

tar: A lone zero block at 82109

The tar version in my system is
tar (GNU tar) 1.15.1

I extracted the same archive in our server where the tar version is:
tar (GNU tar) 1.13.25
and it gave no error

The error/not error is same with either -x or -t flag.

Is it a bug in the new version of tar (I think so, arch should have nothing special about it).

What should I do can anybody suggest?

I have seen that too, but it seems to be a harmless warning message. Have you tested that the package contents are ok?

Yes the size does match, so I think the content may be OK.

Last time I found the directory size mismatch using du -s
but I guess its because the two directory was in two different fs
in server it was xfs, in my home it was ext3.

By the way is there any way to verfiy equivalency of two directories. I know
of md5sum but that works file by file.

Thanks.
