7-zip reports some tar files as having additional 'corrupt' files in them, often located in extra folders named 'PaxHeaders.###' where ### is some number.

For an example see:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/eric-ide/files/eric5/stable/5.4.3/eric5-5.4.3.tar.gz/download

There 7-zip reports folder 'eric5-5.4.3\PaxHeaders.953', but when using Python3 tarfile support these folders do not get listed.

To test use the following:

import tarfile
tarfile.open("eric5-5.4.3.tar.gz").list()

(or you can pass it just "eric5-5.4.3.tar" - it supports both .tar & .tar.gz archives and gives the same results)

Tested using:

  • Windows 7 SP1 x64
  • 7-zip 9.20 64-bit
  • 7-zip 9.32 alfa 64-bit
  • Python 3.4

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
