Sergey, did the bug get fixed? The needing -i to grok tar files created with -A. Is there a reference, e.g. bug number, that I can pass onto others experiencing the issue? Thanks.

Thanks a lot! But I think I'd better fix the issue instead of xfailing it in tests:)

I figured this out the hard way, then found it has already been reported before, <>, then found that I'm not permitted to file a bug against tar on Savannah, thus came up with this bug report in form of a testsuite enhancement patch instead. :-)
