Forgot to add my benchmarks.
Both take around 12-14 MiB but, Xarchiver is a slow CPU hog taking 4½ mins. to extract an 84 MiB ISO from a BZ2 file using 70% CPU while file-roller took 40 secs. and used 45% CPU. This was teh worst of 3 tests but Xarchiver was quite a bit slower throughout. Lets hope file-roller gets sorted.
