One of the users of my Debian packaging of tar reports a problem with
restoring from a multi-volume LS120 diskette backup, as per the
attached.

Thoughts?

Package: tar
Version: 1.19-3
Severity: normal


Backing up to an LS120 (Laser Servo) diskette drive:

 cd ~/backupthislot
 tar cMF /dev/hdd ./

This will perform the backup and periodically ask the user to change 
diskette, until the backup completes.

Restoring from the backup:

 cd ~/restoredirectory
 tar xMf /dev/hdd ./

The first diskette restores normally. A prompt appears to insert the 
next disk in sequence.

When the next disk is inserted, an error occurs: "This volume is out of 
sequence".

The error is consistent, and there is no way to restore the contents of 
the backup from beyond the first diskette.
