Where did you get this file from?

The version on the CRAM master does contain the bundle (and did it not seem strange to you that no one had reported this in the 6 weeks that the version had been out if there was a problem?).

It is also possible that there is a bug in your tar, or a problem with your disc system when unpacking.
