Reported by: Jö Fahlke <jorrit@jorrit.de>
Package: tardy
Version: 1.20-0.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
tardy appears to have problems with archives >2GB:
======================================================================
joe@paranoia:~/GPR/testelectrodynamic/2009-10-12a$ zcat level11.vtk.tar.gz | wc -c
2256721920
joe@paranoia:~/GPR/testelectrodynamic/2009-10-12a$ zcat level11.vtk.tar.gz | tee >(wc -c >&2) | tardy >/dev/null
tardy: standard input: state 0: offset is -476
2149056512
======================================================================

The error happens suspiciously close to 2147483648=2^31 bytes -- probably at
the start of the next archive member. The archive can be unpacked without
problems using tar.

I assume the problem is something obvious so I'm not creating a test-case, if
you still need one please tell me.
