Currently when Xena processes a tar file which contains pax extended header information it does not understand this and interprets this header information as extra files. Although this is not a serious issue as we still have the correct data it would probably be more sensible to store this information as metadata in the Xena file rather than as separate files.

    Sample tar file to show this issue. Created using:
    tar -H pax -cvf paxheader.tar readme
