pax command not restoring ownerships correctly
Customer restored from his mksysb and all of the ownerships had
changed to root.
This is a known bug with pax
The pax command is not restoring the uid and gid of a file if
the owner and group id do not exist in the /etc/passwd file.
This should work exactly like the tar -xv cmd works to restore
When pax is restoring a file and cannot find the owner as a
user, sets owner to root.
