I had the same problem recently and Google told me to look for files

Jan 1, 1970, and found one dated 1901. As soon as I "touch"ed the
problematic file, tar worked.
Many thanks. When I get to work tomorrow, I'll use find. I'll have
to check the man page for the right parameters (I don't usually search
by date) but I think that I can handle that. ;)
Anyway, like I said, the help is much appreciated.
To save you some time, from my notes:
#finds all files modified before 1971
find / ! -newermt "1971-01-01 20:30"
