gzip-1.3.6 (as well as 1.3.4 and 1.3.5) finally fixes an old bug regarding
broken gz files. I keep one of such files here:


The error message is like this:

 incomplete literal tree

zcat: zcatme.gz: invalid compressed data--format violated

I hope this is not a stupid question: Is such error really conformant
to GNU coding standards? (It seems as if the "incomplete literal tree"
were some sort of debug message which perhaps should not be shown at all).
