Bug Description

With xbstream (the binary) being used as a drop-in replacement for tar, the SST script relies on this compatibility. Currently xbstream fails with error 17 (file exists). It would help wsrep_sst_xtrabackup if this was supported.

I'd support this one, this would provide much better defense in depth for PXC-based clusters

This issue can be closed - for further progress on this (which is being worked out in PXC itself) check lp:1222122
