  History: A few very, very old tar programs used the filename to
  distinguish files from dirs (trailing '/' indicated a dir).  Since
  POSIX.1-1987, this convention is no longer necessary.  However, there
  are current tar programs that pretend to write POSIX-compliant
  archives, yet store directories as "regular files", relying on this
  old filename convention to save them.  <sigh> So, move the check for
  this old convention so it applies to all tar archives, not just those
  identified as "old."
