            Bug ID: 10696
           Summary: tar fails to extract some archives
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.27.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: jp.deplaix at gmail.com
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

Using BusyBox v1.27.2 on Alpine Linux, the following error appears with busybox
tar but not with GNU tar:

$ wget
$ tar xvf jbuilder-1.0.beta16.tbz
tar: invalid tar header checksum

Extracting it by hand using bunzip2 doesn't help. The problem seems to be at
tar level.

This can be reproduced with the following Dockerfile:

FROM alpine
RUN wget
RUN tar xvf jbuilder-1.0.beta16.tbz
