If we are polishing stuff like this for 2.0, there are two small bugs
in the permissions in the .tar:

1) vdr-1.7.37/po/sr_SR.po is -rw------- rather than -rw-r--r--

2) all the files have a named owner/group kls/users - ideally the tar
should be created with `tar -c --owner=root --group=root
--numeric-owner` to clear these and set the owner group as 0/0.
Currently if you unpack the tar as root, you end up with files owned
by an unknown user with userid 500.
