Hi all,

Bingo, that is definitely the problem!!!

That is what we had before, kut unfortunately not all tars support these 

Karl: I guess we have to do it that way: for unix we use your new very 
portable code, for W32 we are sure that tar supports -T and use it.

Since I am without workplace atm reading and writing emails from my palm 
(no svn there ;-) I cannot do it now, hopefully Karl can do it these days.

Merry Christmas to all those celebrating it
