Pear doesn't work properly after upgrade to PHP 5.6

After upgrade to PHP 5.6 Pear stopped to work properly giving lot's of "Download of "pear/package_name" succeeded, but it is not a valid package archive". To fix this I had to:

# pear upgrade Archive_Tar
downloading Archive_Tar-1.4.0.tgz ...
Starting to download Archive_Tar-1.4.0.tgz (x bytes)
.......done: x bytes
could not extract the package.xml file from "/tmp/pear/download/Archive_Tar-1.4.0.tgz"
Download of "pear/Archive_Tar" succeeded, but it is not a valid package archive
Error: cannot download "pear/Archive_Tar"
Download failed
upgrade failed
