I wanted to tranfer some thousand (OSM) files from my laptop to the FR;

the tar file is fine on the laptop (FreeBSD 7.0r):

$ tar tf osm-20081114.tar | wc -l

the MD5 sums are matching after transport with SCP:

$ md5 osm-20081114.tar        
MD5 (osm-20081114.tar) = 4b23f51e29307281d0a18e3aac2f7324

root at om-gta02:/media/card# md5sum osm-20081114.tar
4b23f51e29307281d0a18e3aac2f7324  osm-20081114.tar


root at om-gta02:/media/card# tar tf osm-20081114.tar  
tar: corrupted octal value in tar header

Any idea?
