I've uploaded the Utopic version of libtar to the Trusty proposed queue
for review by an SRU team member.

** Changed in: libtar (Ubuntu Trusty)
       Status: Triaged => In Progress

** Changed in: libtar (Ubuntu Trusty)
     Assignee: (unassigned) => Brian Murray (brian-murray)

** Description changed:

+ [Test Case]
+ 1) Download the sample program from comment #7
+ 2) Compile the program (gcc foo.c -ltar -o foo
+ 3) Run ./foo <any-tarfile>
+ Using the version of libtar from Trusty (1.2.20-3) the foo program will
+ crash.  Using the version of libtar from trusty-proposed
+ (1.2.20-3ubuntu0.1) it should not.
  Description:    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  Release:        14.04
-   Installed: 1.2.19-1   (working)
-   Candidate: 1.2.20-3   (segfaults)
+   Installed: 1.2.19-1   (working)
+   Candidate: 1.2.20-3   (segfaults)
  I stumbled over this bug when trying to use Stopmotion. It segfaulted when trying to load a project file.
  I debugged it and ended up at 'tar_extract_all'.
  Stopmotion worked well again when I downgraded libtar to 1.2.19-1 from saucy.
