System: NetBSD sanctum 3.0 NetBSD 3.0 (SANCTUM) #3: Wed Jun 7 21:48:27 PDT 2006 root@sanctum:/home/ben/src/netbsd/3.0/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/SANCTUM i386

Using the pkgsrc-current/net/samba utility smbtar with the -v and -t
arguments produces a corrupt tar archive because the verbose output from
-v is on stdout instead of stderr.

jlam said he would take care of this.

 I should clarify that I am using "smbtar -t -" and piping that to
 "dd conv=osync" in order to write blocks with the tape drive block size,
 which is a multiple of the tar block size, because the maximum tar block
 size is so small.

 I don't think this problem would affect "smbtar -t /dev/nrst0"

Back to role account, jlam lost his commit bit.
