tar crashes while unpacking .var.tar

I added some files to /var and now busybox-tar crashes while unpacking
the tar file. Recompiling tar under the host OS doesn't reproduce
the problem and it crashes on etrax-lx if one simply views the file with
tar -tf.

Maybe uClibc should be built for the host as well and used for host
compiled binaries?

I tried the latest busybox (0.51), but it crashes in the same spot on
etrax/uC-libc, not under the host os. Just looking at the archive makes
it crash (tar -tf).

I've bzip2:ed the file and included it, if someone would like to try
to debug it.
