A Small Fix for dds2tar

According to the man page, dds2tar should be able to use an index file generated with an unpatched tar (using -Rv or -Rvv). But my tests showed that this is not the case.

I have therefore fixed the index parsing code of dds2tar to make it work with index files generated by an unpatched tar.

Update: This fix has already been incorporated in Debian woody.
