Is there no test for this commit?

By the time I had dug through the guts of the nearly completely untested Gem::Package::TarInput and all its closely-coupled related classes in Gem::Package I gave up because it had already taken at three times longer to even think about writing the first line of a test than it took to find and fix.

You're welcome to succeed where I failed!
