This bug was fixed in the package libtar - 1.2.20-3ubuntu0.1

libtar (1.2.20-3ubuntu0.1) trusty-proposed; urgency=high

  [ Magnus Holmgren ]
  * no_maxpathlen.patch: Half of the part of the patch modifying
    compat/dirname.c was missing, causing libtar's dirname to always
    return NULL (except in special circumstances). Actually make it work
    (Closes: #745352). (The reason that libtar doesn't use libc's
    dirname() and basename() on some or most platforms is that the code
    doesn't work with destructive versions of these functions). (LP: #1315742)
