Post Filename case within .tar archives

Hi,

I've uploaded a .tar archive for you to look at (had to zip it to allow upload) which contains two files varying by case - bc.txt and BC.txt.

Comparing case.tar with itself or another directory using BC 3.3.4 - build 14431, and maybe other builds, somehow loses one of the files during its untar operation.

You can see from the console session below that tar extract works OK regardless of the "--(no-)ignore-case" options.

Code:
dave@K-Matrix $ ls -l  case
ls: cannot access case: No such file or directory

dave@K-Matrix $ tar --no-ignore-case -xvf case.tar
case/
case/bc.txt
case/BC.txt

dave@K-Matrix $ ls -l  case
total 0
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dave dave 0 2012-04-13 15:40 bc.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dave dave 0 2012-04-13 15:40 BC.txt

dave@K-Matrix $ rm -r case

dave@K-Matrix $ ls -l  case
ls: cannot access case: No such file or directory

dave@K-Matrix $ tar --ignore-case -xvf case.tar
case/
case/bc.txt
case/BC.txt

dave@K-Matrix $ ls -l  case
total 0
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dave dave 0 2012-04-13 15:40 bc.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dave dave 0 2012-04-13 15:40 BC.txt

dave@K-Matrix $ rm -r case

dave@K-Matrix $

Dave

Thanks for the report. We'll look into this. In the meantime, it is probably best to extract the tar to your hdd as a folder, then compare the extracted files (which should handle the multiple files of different case).

Thanks, Aaaron.
Yes, I read the the threads about case sensitivity and BC handles it as I'd expect with normal folders.
