Can you show me a listing of that directory?

Interesting.  Can you try an earlier version of tarsnap in case we broke

The most common cause for "tarsnap-keygen works but tarsnap doesn't" is
network MTU issues -- but that (a) shouldn't be a problem on cloud systems,
and (b) should eventually produce errors with tarsnap can't communicate with
the server.  Simply *hanging* is not a symptom I've heard about before.
