- are the "missing" files the same every time you run the script / tar ?
- what does
ls -la ./<user>/Maildir/.Trash/cur/
- could it be the fact that those file names contain : ? i dont think
so, but it's worth giving it a try. If it is, u may want to check if
it's a tar problem or a shell problem, in which case u may be able to
change the default list delimiter to see if it makes any difference (i
dont see why it $IFS would affect this..but )
let us know how it goes,
