New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:
When extracting, the time stamps of directories are modified twice: once when creating the directories, and then once in reverse order when done.
The first utimes call is redundant; it also causes issues with a buggy NFS server, see
(specifically, touching a file twice with the same second-resolution time stamp will increase the microsecond counter).
The attached patch works around the issue; regardless of the NFS bug, I think that the redundant call should be eliminated.
