Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-09-15 02:32:28 UTC
Description of problem:
tar seems to have problems extracting files from archives when a wildcard
specifying which files to extract is given on the command line.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.15.91-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir foo.new
2. touch foo.new/foo.bar
3. tar cvf foo.new.tar foo.new
4. tar xvf foo.new.tar "*.bar"
  
Actual results:
tar output:
  tar: Pattern matching characters used in file names. Please,
  tar: use --wildcards to enable pattern matching, or --no-wildcards to
  tar: suppress this warning.
  tar: *.bar: Not found in archive
  tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Expected results:
tar output:
  foo.new/foo.bar

Additional info:
If it helps, this worked in 1.15.90-7.

It's not a bug. This behavior has been changed by upstream.
