Looks like this was an intentional change: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-tar/2016-05/msg00008.html
--no-recursion is apparently positional, so the fact that this worked before
may have been accidental. As of http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/tar.git/commit/?id=9a33077a7b7ad7d32815a21dee54eba63b38a81c
(the very first commit after 1.29), this invocation now gives an error.
Guess no action is needed.
