When tarinfo.name is exactly 100 characters long, the last character is
truncated in the tarfile

Attached patch contains the extremely simple fix.

Lars, for information. I'm closing as 2.4 isn't being maintained I
presume, and while I believe it also affects 2.5, I don't think its a
security issue, just data loss
