Hi all,

I'm migrating some VMs from Proxmox 1.9 to Proxmox 2.1, using a NAS as
an intermediate backup point.

I'm receiving a "tar: write error" message while restoring the backup to
Proxmox 2.1 server, althought after that restoration seems successful,
and an fsck to the filesystem reports no errors. Any hint why this is
happening? I received that message in 5 of 6 restores so far. Restoring
from regular PVE backups also produces that error message.

Backup creation:
