and then post the detailed backtrace here. "tar" uses several
libraries. It can be anything, even unstable hardware (such as bad RAM
chips).

This is the output I get:

[root tbred roland]# gdb /bin/tar
GNU gdb Red Hat Linux (6.3.0.0-1.159.el4rh)

(gdb) run --cvzf buXXX b*
Starting program: /bin/tar --cvzf buXXX b*
(no debugging symbols found)
(no debugging symbols found)

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x0806d4e6 in ?? ()
(gdb) Quit
(gdb)


I do not see much of a story here. I hope you do.

Run:

debuginfo-install tar

and repeat

poc


and don't forget to issue 'bt' to get a back trace before quiting.
even with out debug symbols it can sometimes be useful, but is always more useful than you got above.
