"tar tzf -" hang
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:16 EDT
when using "tar tzf -", it will hang.
I debug into tar source codes, and found that "tar-1.13.17-exitcode.patch"
use "waitpid()" system call, it use third parameter with zero, which means
that it will hang until child process exit, but "gzip -d" child process
