Apparently, the problem is located in TarInfo._proc_gnulong(). I attached a patch.

When tarfile reads an archive, it strips trailing slashes from all filenames, except GNUTYPE_LONGNAME headers, which is a bug. tarfile creates GNU_FORMAT tar files by default, hence it uses an additional GNUTYPE_LONGNAME header for filenames >100 chars. That's why fails if used with PAX_FORMAT, because PAX_FORMAT doesn't have this bug.
