Thanks for testing and confirming.

I wasn't really looking for alternative command lines as I would normally just do a tar -xvf but my problem is that portage is doing something like:
pbzip2 -d -cq broken.tar.bz2 | tar -xp -C /tmp/.... -f -
Which also fails. The >broken.tar syntax was the obvious most simple case that both demonstrated the problem and showed that the data was being truncated at an interesting number of bytes.
