Subject: Re: [boost] [iostreams] 1.41 gzip filter regression

   For what it's worth, I seem to have encountered the same bug with Boost
   1.41. Strangely enough, our gzip unit tests work fine on OSX with 1.41, but
   fail on CentOS 5 with "gzip errors." Same tests work fine on all platforms
   with 1.37 through 1.40. I mention this in case it might have something to
   do with the version of zlib that ships with CentOS 5? Alexander, which
   platform are you using?
   Take care,

Hi guys,

In 1.41 we are experiencing regression in boost::iostreams::gzip_decompressor.
Almost 50% percents of our test *.gz files failed to decompress.

Following code snippet usually throws gzip error:

   std::ifstream f(n, std::ios_base::in | std::ios_base::binary);

      std::cerr<<"cant' open "<<n<<'\n';

   namespace io = boost::iostreams;

   io::filtering_istream in;
   in.push(io::gzip_decompressor() );

   std::istreambuf_iterator<char> b(in);
   std::istreambuf_iterator<char> e;


   std::copy(b, e, std::ostream_iterator<char>(std::cout) );

Maybe that is caused by incorrect api usage.
In this case, sorry for the noise in advance.

I've attached minimal example that reproduces the issue.
Build showfile executable and run ./showfile myfile.odt.bz2.gz > result.
You should have 'error: gzip error' on stderr.
