Is this still a problem? I've tested it and it looks
fixed in -CURRENT (as of a couple of years ago).
(Of course, pax still can't handle entries >=8g,
a limitation not present in bsdtar, star, or even
gtar. Maybe it's time to start on a libarchive-based
pax implementation. ;-)
If there are no objections, I'll close this.
