I had the same problem recently and Google told me to look for files with malformed dates. I used "find" to search for files dated before 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"
