I have the opposite trouble.
I tried to create a tar of a folder containing a link, an it just take huge of time wheras :
- the folder contain just one small file and the link.
- link target is contain GB of data.

using fileroller, it takes too long time (I canceled it and and show the bug #107574).
Using tar -cvf, it work correctly.

I'm running gutsy.
