I tried bazaar with a long filename (174 chars), and then a long
directoryname of similar size and moved the long filename into this
I did not have any problems. Bazaar can deal with it and 'bzr export
--format=tar foobar.tar' puts it into a tarball without any warnings or
errors. 'tar tvf' displays the tarball correctly.
If someone has a broken tar (e.g. the one delivered with Solaris), then
get a better one like 'star' at
<http://cdrecord.berlios.de/old/private/star.html> or take the GNU tar.
