Quite sure it doesn't affect this, since this is tar (and zip) which  
use Darwin API to query the file for extended attributes (and  
resources forks) to store in the archive (as what I think is  

Actually, I just looked at zip, and for zip archives you can disable  
this using -X.

I don't see a similar option for tar, if someone needs it, I'd  
suggest filling an enhancement report with Apple: http:// 
radar.apple.com/ (or as mentioned in my previous letter, getting a  
non-Apple blessed version of tar).
