The attached file produces the following stacktrace when opened via `tarfile.open` and iterated with `TarFile.getmembers`, on Python 3.7.5rc1:

$ cat tarrepro.py 
import tarfile
import sys

with tarfile.open(sys.argv[1]) as t:
  for member in t.getmembers():

$ python3 tarrepro.py crash-462a00f845e737bff6df2fe6467fc7cdd4c39cd8e27ef1d3011ec68a9808ca8e
