So the fix is to change the archive format used in the archive functions
in ezjail-admin ie. where it says:

pax -wzXt -x ustar


If so, to which pax format should the "-x ustar" bit be changed? cpio?
Both cpio and ustar are IEEE Std 1003.2 ... i.e. POSIX.2 but cpio handles
longer paths ... which maybe could be an issue if there are long paths in
the jail too, so perhaps this is a good "bug" to discover now.

Can we hack our own ezjail-admin files or should we wait for a fix and/or
a new beta release! :-)
