I have SUSE 10 on my laptop where I've been playing with some fairly big
files. I just tested a smaller one, a little over 6 Gbytes compressed,
My files are not tarballs, they're images of paritions and disks, and I
did not pipe them into bzip2, I wrote the data to the files and then

I don't use tar that way, I always tell tar to do the compression. It
should not be different, but it might be.
