[Bug 407552] New: tar crashes with assertion in io.c:234

Summary: tar crashes with assertion in io.c:234
Product: openSUSE 11.0
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.0
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: R.Vickers@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: Customer

Since upgrading to opensuse 11.0 from 10.2 backups have been sometimes failing
one system with the message:

gtar: io.c:234: ber_flush2: Assertion `( (sb)->sb_opts.lbo_valid == 0x3 )'
sendbackup: error [dump (8236) /bin/tar got signal 6]

This looks extremely similar to an Openldap problem reported (for example) at;page=1;statetype=1

/bin/tar is from tar-1.19-35.1 and is being invoked by the Amanda backup
software thus:
running: /bin/tar: 'gtar' '--create' '--file' '-' '--directory' '/home'
'--one-file-system' '--listed-incremental'
'/var/lib/amanda/gnutar-lists/' '--sparse'
'--ignore-failed-read' '--totals' '--exclude-from'
'/tmp/amanda/sendbackup._home.20080709031221.exclude' '.'

/home contains 172 GB of data. I tried to reproduce the problem outside of
Amanda, but so far without success.
