SubjectRe: mirroring inconsistency
Hi Charles.

There's a patch to the tar source that allows a variant of this by
specifying Z instead of z and the standard version of tar can be used
by specifying the following...

Q> tar -xv --use-compress-program bzip2 -f foo.tar.bz2

Does that help?

Best wishes from Riley.
