I'm getting a memory leak when using the gzip_decompressor due to a failure
to call inflateEnd/deflateEnd during object destruction. I have inserted
the following line into zlib.cpp tp correct the problem:

void zlib_base::reset(bool compress)
z_stream* s = static_cast<z_stream*>(stream_);
zlib_error::check(compress ? deflateReset(s) : inflateReset(s));
zlib_error::check(compress ? deflateEnd(s) : inflateEnd(s)); // gmg cleanup
stream->state and embedded pointers

There may be a better place for this, for example in the zlib destructor,
since it may be desirable on occasion to reset a stream without destroying
the state (??). Or perhaps there should be a new function to encapsulate
the call to deflateEnd/inflateEnd which is called in the destructor.
