New submission from sengels <ps_ml at gmx.de>:

This bug seems to be related to http://bugs.python.org/issue13158

When I try to run the following code:

import tarfile

tf = tarfile.open("kdelibs-4.7.3.tar.bz2", "r")

against this tarball: http://www.winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/repository/other/kdelibs-4.7.3.tar.bz2 it will output 150 members. This is not enough and other tools like 7zip or bsdtar report a lot more (should be around 9237).
