buildbot.test.test_transfer.UploadDirectory tests are broken on python 2.3 since it doesn't support TarFile.extractall() functionality.

Problem is in remote_unpack function in steps/transfer.py

Created a ticket for the problem

I'll look into this in more detail later, but I suspect that it is also a problem on python 2.4 since the documentation states that the function was only added in 2.5.

Possible fix would be to use the other functions supplied by Tarfile to replicate the behaviour of extractall either for all versions or for python < 2.5
