SUMMARY: bar problem with special character file names

Our problem is that we can't unarchive compressed bar files which include
directory names containing special characters such as '$'.

I got one response which indicated that bar does work properly if you do not
compress the archive (do not use the -Z option). However, we need to compress
the files for space reasons, and we already have compressed files which we
need to recover.

We contacted Sun, and they are sending us a patch for bar which should fix our
problem. I would be happy to send anyone info on the patch after we receive
it. Just let me know if you are interested. BTW, this is bar in Sunos
4.1.1 on sparc systems.
