It unpacks correctly for me on Windows using Cygwin's (GNU) tar
1.13.25, bzip2 1.0.2 and the following command line:
tar -xjf boost-CVS-HEAD-2005-12-16-17-43.tar.bz2
Just in case, the archive's size before unpacking should be 11,304,911
Googling a bit on the topic reveals this, though (from
* GNU tar 1.13: even though the second problem in release 1.12 is
already fixed in 1.13, the other is only partially fixed.
Besides, there are a couple of other problems in release 1.13,
related with exclude patterns and restoring, so its use is not
recommended. Hopefully, all of these problems will be fixed in
GNU tar 1.14. If you want to use something past 1.12, 1.13.25
appears to be stable.
So it looks like you might have either to upgrade or downgrade your
tar executable. Alternatively, you could direct regression.py to get
the sources using anonymous CVS access.
