What you are doing should be possible, maybe adding --verbose to the command 
line can point you in the direction which file it thinks is "invalid". There is 
a known issue with Unicode filenames containing special characters that can not 
be represented in 8 bit encoding.

Interesting, any crash in Kleopatra should of course be fixed. It would be 
great if you could identify which file causes this and we can maybe figure out 
why gpgtar thinks this file is invalid.

Skipping Invalid file sounds to me like an error in the gpgtar program / 
something not properly handled in there and not like a command line syntax
