The error reported is reproducible using tar-1.21. However, the book has moved 
on to 1.22, which behaves as expected, as did 1.20.

The only relevant discussion I found on the tar mailing lists is here:

A few notes (using version 1.21):
I was unable to reproduce the error with any other .tar.bz2 files; I tried a 
few. I also tried the following (which worked fine *shrug*):

bunzip2 glibmm-2.18.1.tar.bz2
strace -o strace.output cat glibmm.tar | tar xof -
