From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
When piping the output from zcat into tar I regularily get what
appears to be an error about a short read.  I didn't get these
with WS3 or core2.  I was wondering if it might just be a debug
message that was left behind in the code.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use zcat on a compressed tar file and pipe to tar -tf - or -xf -

Actual Results:  zcat linux* | tar -tf -
tar: Read 8192 bytes from -

Expected Results:  zcat linux* | tar -tf -

I can't reproduce this error. 
Try upgrade tar to tar-1.14-4.
