Unpacking proton tarball on fedora 21 from
http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/qpid/proton/0.9/qpid-proton-0.9.tar.gz

> tar -xf downloads/qpid-proton-0.9.tar.gz
tar: .: Cannot utime: Operation not permitted
tar: .: Cannot change mode to rwx-----T: Operation not permitted
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Note the files did get extracted OK, but tar trips up when it tries to
chmod the top-level directory. In the tarfile the top-level directory
mode is  drwx------ instead of the usual drwxrwxr-x, I think that is the
cause of the problem.

Cheers,
Alan.
