I found the problem which is in the kernel (if it IS at all).

Tar testsuite assumes that readdir () system call returns file1 and 
file2 in the alphabetical order (file1 firstly, file2 secondly) but in 
my case the assumption is wrong (may be due to using dir_index when 
mounting ext3 partition). Moreover readdir must _not_ return filenames 
in an order so no wonder the test failed.
