[BusyBox] tar -C broken in 1.0pre3

it appears that the -C option to tar is not working in busybox1.0pre3.
The switch is accepted but it does not do a 'change directory' before
taring up the directory.
tar cvf /tmp/xx.tar -C /etc/X11 .
lists the files in /var/log instead of /etc/X11!
This is with BusyBox 1.0pre3 cross-compiled to a ppc_8xx processor with
the ELDK cross compiler.
Is this a known problem? Is there a fix already?
