I had the same problem with entries:

SCHILY.xattr.system.posix_acl_default, SCHILY.xattr.system.posix_acl_access

in a tarball with pax header.

This seems to be fixed for Python 3 in the issue 8633, commit 1465cc2 in cpython.

Tarfile from Python 2 assumes (in _proc_pax) that the values can be always decoded as utf-8 string.
