I used tar for a while now to extract zip files with the command

  tar --strip-components 3 -xzf /tmp/${lang_file}

where lang_file is a file containing translations, in zip format.

Recently the unpacking fails:
gzip: stdin has more than one entry - rest ignored
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

bsdtar still works fine with the above command. Was there a recent change in
