I will have a look to tar to see if there is still trouble.

As a summary about tar:

1) Bug about "tar -C /":

I think you cannot not open / because you cannot write to it. This is MiNT-special. What would be the implications if / could be opened for writing?

Why does tar call open("/"), instead of chdir, as this is what tar -C claims to do?
