In a situation where extracting from the command line, a nonexistant folder is supplied as the destination folder path preferably the same name as the archive name with a forward slash at the end, xarchiver crashes with a segfault. Removing the forward slash doesn't produce the crash though.
Example execution (the archive exists but not the folder):
$] xarchiver -x --extract-to=destination yersinia-0.7.1.tar.gz/
Xarchiver 0.5.2 (©)2005-2008 Giuseppe Torelli
Backtrace is attached.
