Upon re-reading your message, I realized something: to make use of managed
mode, you have to extract *to* a directory mounted in managed mode.
IIUC, the directory where the tar file itself resides is irrelevant.
Make sure the command you give to untar the file doesn't contain the "-C"
flag (which will actually change the output directory).
