The issue is caused by changes in output of `unsquashfs` command. Now headers[1] are not shown while listing files `unsquashfs -lls`. Skipping of headers is not needed.

Now with my patch file-roller successfulty operates with squashfs images.

[1] With older releases there is a header line in the output:
```Parallel unsquashfs: Using 8 processors
152 inodes (166 blocks) to write```

Please get this fix accepted upstream, first.
