A broken pipe means one process finished before another.  In this case, it
sounds like tar aborted before bzip2 could complete.  There should have
been another message before the broken pipe.  Are you low on memory by any
chance?  Are your tar files more than 2GB?  Those are the only things that
come to mind.
