I've also checked in case it was a lack of space in /tmp, but that
doesn't seem to be the problem at all. If nothing else, one of the files

of space to extract. Files which are not failing are much larger.
Can you provide us with one such small file to see if we can reproduce
the problem or they contain sensitive / personal information?

As requested, here are three of the small files that I have had problems 
reading or extracting with Midnight Commander in my backup archive. Hope 
they're of some help.

Ok, I'm sorry, I probably didn't understand you correctly. I was
thinking that you have several small archives that mc consistently fails
to extract, but apparently what you meant is that these files that
you've sent me are the ones that mc fails to extract from the big
archive that you have.

I don't see a way to diagnose the issue without having an example
archive that mc consistently fails to extract.

If you don't have such an archive I don't see where we can go from here.
I guess the easiest would be to try strace / ltrace and see what is
happening when it hangs up, otherwise if you are familiar with debugging
you could probably attach to a process as it gets stuck and see what's
going on there.
