    Is in use on the client? If so it's a known problem:
    mmap() screws up the page cache invalidation routine
    invalidate_inode_page(). If you do the untar on the client, then all
    will be fine...

    However the last time your report was of a problem in which the server
    was corrupted, and the client was good. Was that a typo, or is it
    still the case?
