  Some old tar archives rely on "regular-file-plus-trailing-slash" to
  denote a directory.  Unfortunately, in the presence of GNU or POSIX
  extensions, this code was checking the truncated filename stored in the
  regular header rather than the full filename stored in the extended
  attribute.  As a result, long filenames with '/' in just the right
  position would trigger this check and be erroneously marked as
  directories.  Move the check so it only considers the full filename.
  Note: the check can't simply be disabled for archives that contain
  these extensions because there are some very broken archivers out
