I downloaded the gcj 3.4.5 beta
(gcc-java-3.4.5-20060117-1.tar.gz) and found two
members of the tar is recorded with backslash as
path-separators. They were "bin\\addr2name.awk" and
I understand backslashes work fine with standard tar
tools, but mine doesn't, because it verifies the path
string very strictly.
(Remember that, recently, there are some evil guys who
distribute archives with strange paths to put
virus/worm in users' PCs...)
I hope the problem be fixed before 3.4.5 become "relase".
