1.109.1. RHBA-2010:0595: bug fix update

An updated perl-Archive-Tar package that fixes a bug is now available.
The Archive::Tar module provides a mechanism for Perl scripts to manipulate tar archive files.
This updated perl-Archive-Tar package fixes the following bug:
* when using the Archive::Tar Perl module, when the $VERSION variable was referenced, a warning message similar to the following was printed to standard output:
Argument "1.39_01" isn't numeric in subroutine entry at -e line 1.
This was caused by the presence of an underscore in the $VERSION variable. With this update, the Archive::Tar module no longer outputs this warning message. ( BZ#614408)
Note: this regression was caused by a change to the module's version number, and was introduced by the RHSA-2010:0505 perl-Archive-Tar security update.
All users of perl-Archive-Tar are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects this issue. All applications using the Archive::Tar module must be restarted for this update to take effect.
