I uploaded a broken tar for testing:

===> LANG=C tar -xf tar_which_is_cut.tar
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

===> python
Python 2.7.6 (default, Mar 22 2014, 22:59:56) 
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import tarfile
>>> tarfile.TarFile('tar_which_is_cut.tar', errorlevel=2).extractall()
(Sad, no error)
