See the Amanda users' list thread starting at
Tar-1.14-4 have problems with sparse files.
Try tar-1.15.1-2 from devel.
I'd be glad to, but the current devel version is still 1.14-4.
tar-1.15.1-3 should have been there soon(1-2 days).
Yes, it's there now (as of 1/31), and I can confirm it works.
Can we get an errata push to FC3?
