That seems to be the same problem as my report #247 . When a symlink pointing to a non existent file (there is not /bin/tar in the encrypted filesystem), one gets an error when trying to get the extended attributes of the symlink (because encfs uses a system call to get the attributes of the target file, not of the symlink itself).
