samba, tar weirdness

[ #10020 ]
Mounting Windows drives from *nix via Samba is always a good source of interesting errors when things go wrong.

The latest one is from tar:

djberge>tar cvf temp.tar file*.csv
tar: file1.csv: file changed as we read it

# and eventually...
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Interesting, considering it's a 4 month old static file. Even more interesting is that I don't get this error if I do it the long way and specify each file name individually. Guess it's time for ye ol' -r option.

I see, via google, that a bunch of people have run into the same thing. No good answers, though.

Samba 2.2.7a, btw
