-T option is having a problem reading a file with file paths that include the '/' after the final folder name e.g.
$ cat pathList

gnutar -xzPf SNAPDB3.regress3.NODE0000.20160125101810.tar.gz -T pathList
gnutar: /onPath0/regress3/NODE0000/SNAPDB3/: Not found in archive
gnutar: /onPath0/regress3/NODE0000/SQL00001/: Not found in archive

If I remove the final '/' from the path, it works.
Also, if you run it with gnutar 1.26, it works.
