> This check was the source of a bug that caused tarfile to report a regular as a directory because the file path was extra long, and when the tar write truncated the path to the first 100B, it so happened to end on a slash.

AFAIK, '/' character is not allowed as part of a filename on Linux systems. Is this bug platform specific? Can you give the testcase you are referring to.
