Subject: Test-Smoke-1.73 tarball damaged
I have a program which makes an FTP call to a CPAN mirror and downloads a .tar.gz for the latest version of Test-Smoke. Test-Smoke-1.73.tar.gz is damaged. I have downloaded this from multiple mirrors, but when I unpack it I get errors like in the attached. I had to hack my program to use Test-Smoke-1.72.tar.gz instead. Can you investigate? (I suspect you'll have to upload a new version to CPAN.) Thank you very much. Jim Keenan

The tarball can be opened on my machine (OSX, using BSD Tar). Can you be more specific as to what your script is doing, and what program/version it is using to extract the tarball?
