Subject:   2.0.5-RELEASE: Is there a BUG in "ar"?

Is there a bug in "ar"? I wanted to replace a .so module in
so I did:

# cd /usr/lib
# mkdir tmp
# cd tmp
# ar x ../libc_pic.a
ar: ../libc_pic.a: Inappropriate file type or format

Though there are quite a few .so objects in /usr/lib/tmp, the RPC objects
(specifically, I'm trying to replace the hacked up object)
which should be in the appear not to be there! Looks like the
extract died before completing. Is this a bug in "ar"?

Can anyone shed light on this?
