GZIP-options causing breakage

Bug #883026 reported by Morten Siebuhr

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tar (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When using tar -z <something>, and having verbose gzip enabled by default, tar breaks (because gzip outputs progress/file information to stdout).

To reproduce
> GZIP='-v' tar -zxf - < some.tgx > /dev/null
gzip: stdin: decompression OK, trailing zero bytes ignored
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
