 Is there any experience of using gtar 1.07 with 386/ix 2.0.2.
 I have compiled it and it works fine with small < 100M file systems
 but when i backup large 150M filesystem i got always memory fault,
 core dumped in same place. I have used gdb to look where it happens
 and it happens in malloc , called by opendir. Is there anybody had same
 problem. I like to ask this before trying to analyze problem more
