Yeah, Dan actually has some local changes for that.  The problem is
that that's not the real issue.  The real issue is that the .tar.bz
file that came through was not extracted with "tar -xf", but instead
it fell through the case to the "bunzip2" call, leaving a tar file,
instead of an extracted directory.
