There was a similar problem in TL '08 for pgf files, and
I think that problem was solved.
By remaking longname.tar.xz by using "tar.exe", all files including
long named ones are correctly extracted.
Are you using a file format newer than that in TL '08?
Please try a format as old as possible, that tar.exe understands,
or search for a new tar.

Best regards,
